Autumn Amazing Acers

A- | A+

From emerging buds in spring through new growth and summer colour, Japanese Acers get better as the year goes on.  In autumn, they change from the summer colours of greens, limes, purples and reds to spectacular shades of oranges, scarlets, crimsons, purple bronzes and yellows.

Acers are great to grow in a pot as a feature.  Carefully consider the position of the pot before you plant.  Place in a sheltered spot out of the wind and in dappled shade to get the best displays of colour from your tree.
