An Acer palmatum Atropurpureum has 5-7 large deeply lobed leaves. The leaves have pointed tips and the edges are slightly toothed. In spring the leaves appear rich purple, which turn deeper purple in summer and scarlet in Autumn.
Acer palmatum Atropurpureum grows well in partial shade or full sun, although full sun can cause leaf scorch. Japanese maples do not like to be dry or waterlogged, they thrive best when the soil around is kept moist. The Acer will grow as an unright tree or shrub.
