A small tree that originates from Japan, with beautifully lobed or composed leaves and striking red-orange autumn colours. Slow growing, it makes an excellent small tree to have in borders or on the patio (with regular watering). It is also great for bonsai. The tree prefers slightly acidic soil with good drainage due to it having very thin roots. Our plants are in a special compost mix with added loam, which provides an excellent environment for the roots. The flowers are small but pinkish, with red winged fruits developing on the tree. The glorious autumn colours become the main attraction, adding an ornamental value. We have lovely seedlings with red foliage and very pretty leaves.
