Acer palmatum ‘Katsura’ is a delightful form of Japanese Maple with striking, spring growth. Five lobed leaves unfold a pale yellow with margins of brighter orange. As the season progresses into the summer, the leaves turn yellowish-green with enhanced bright yellow and orange colours in the autumn. The name ‘Katsura’ means a ‘Wig’.
History: Received an Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society.
Acer Growing Tips: Very easy to grow in a wide range of well-drained soils. They thrive in sun but with partial shade to protect the leaves from scorch. A sheltered area away from strong winds is preferred.
