Japanese Acers or Maples are renowned for their autumn colour. So, it will come as no surprise that lots of articles in this collection focus on Japanese Acers in Autumn. For example, Best Acers for Autumn Colour and Japanese Maples in Autumn. We also look at Variegated Japanese Acers and Acers with pink-red foliage (not just in Autumn). And we take a closer look at the Dissectum Group of Japanese Maples (Acer Palmatum Dissectum). You might like to visit our related section on Japanese-style Gardens.
The name Japanese Maple is generally given to all those trees that originate from Japan and fall within the Acer cultivars of Palmatum and Japonicum.
