Acer Palmatum

Acer Palmatum is also known as the Japanese Maple and sometimes as the Japanese Smooth Maple tree. These Acers originate from lower altitudes throughout central and southern Japan, they originally grew under the canopy of larger trees in woodlands.
Acer Palmatum prefers a moist, rich, well drained soil in partial shade and should be sheltered from winds to prevent leaf burn. It’s very important not to let Acers dry out during the hot summer months. They will produce magnificent leaf colours in the autumn, vibrant oranges and shades of red, creating spectacular shapes and sometimes decorative bark texture and colour.

Acer Palmatum Atropurpureum

Acer Palmatum Atropurpureum is also known as Japanese Maple.
For many centuries Japanese gardeners have been developing cultivars from Japanese Acers found in Japan and also in China and Korea. Acer Palmatum Atropurpureum is one such cultivar, it is a faster growing variety of red acer. With wine red coloured leaves - including the new branches turning to bright red in autumn.

This Japanese Maple is a hardy deciduous tree which does best in partial shade and care should be taken to protect it from cold winds - this will burn the leaves.
Acer Palmatum Atropurpureum prefers a neutral to acidic well drained soil and it flowers between April to May, it achieves a max height of 4 metres and a spread of 2-3 metres. It is possible to grow in a large container but it is imperative to keep it well watered.  Acers are slow growing and the maximum heights will generally take many years to achieve.  Specimen Acers available from circa 7-9 years of age upwards.  Other purple/red acers include acer palmatum dissectum garnet and acer palmatum tropenburg.

They grow up to 1m per year (2-3ft).

Ilex Nelly Stevens Holly Tree is a perfect choice for any garden.

It has spiny emerald green leaves with reliable crop of berries every year and is a very tough and easy to plant to grow.  Also known as Ilex Nellie R Stevens this holly produces the red berries without the need for a male/female partner. 

Nelly Stevens Hollies have the beautiful dark glossy leaves of normal holly but are not sharp.

Our selection of clipped hollies are nice mature plants and we have tried not to be too heavy handed with the shears to produce a smart but not over formal looking plant. 

Maintenance is easy if kept in pots as all they require are a regular and consistent watering in the growing months and a light trim once a year after they have produced all the new foliage.

It is advisable to apply to the surface of the soil especially in pots a light dressing of slow release fertiliser granules once a year in early spring.

In the ground they will grow in any well draining fertile soil in sun or part shade and once established will require only the lightest of trims once a year.

Non-drop christmas trees have been supplied by us at Paramount Plants and Gardens every Christmas for 20 years and we have very happy satisfied customers who return annually for the fantastic quality, price and service offered.

Known as Abies Nordmanniana these are bushy trees and so are the best trees for a perfect Xmas Tree. The green needles with silvery underneath are soft and do not drop from the tree provided they are not left to dry out too much indoors. Trees are native to Turkey, Georgia, Russia and Armenia.
