The Japanese Acer, also known as the Japanese Maple, is a family of deciduous decorative trees, which are grown for their stunning foliage. The leaves produce brilliant autumnal colours.
The Acers are native to Asia, predominantly Japan, North Korea, South Korea and China. It was mainly the Japanese horticulturalists who developed Acers and Acer cultivars over the centuries. Japanese Acers were first introduced to the UK in the 1800’s and have been a feature ever since – prized for the colour of the foliage and their delicate forms.
Acers are slow growing plants and trees and often develop a dome like form when mature. Japanese Maples will add a delicate oriental tone to your English garden. At Paramount Plants, Japanese Acers are a speciality. We always have a wide range of Acer trees in stock in a variety of sizes.
