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.
