An Acer palmatum Deshojo has bright red leaves in spring although this quickly changes to a light green with bonze edges in the summer before turning scarlet in Autumn.
Acer palmatum Deshojo grows well in full sun. It can tolerate partial shade, however leaf colours will not be as bright or intense if they are not exposed to full sun. 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 upright tree or shrub.
