Acer Palmatum Sode Nishiki is a deciduous upright Japanese Maple with colourful foliage. It suits sheltered spaces and is sutiable for container growing

Acer Palmatum Sode Nishiki’s origins lie in Japan, China, and Korea. Acers were introduced to the UK in 1820 and became popular for their hardy nature and brightly coloured seasonal foliage. Japanese Acer Sode Nishiki is from the Katsura group of maples that have bright yellow-orange spring foliage. Sode Nishiki has five-fingered palm-like foliage with serrated edges and red shoots. In early spring the bright foliage has a pink edge which matures to orange with red edging in late spring.  As summer approaches foliage turns light green before maturing to dark green for mid-summer. In autumn this acer holds its own with deep orange and scarlet leaves that fall with the frosts. 

Height And Spread of Acer Palmatum Sode Nishiki
A small tree, Japanese Acer Sode Nishiki is slow-growing and takes 10-20 years to reach a maximum of 3 metres in height. 

How Hardy Is Acer Palmatum Sode Nishiki
This is a hardy palmatum acer from the cold regions of the Far East. It will withstand sub-zero temperatures if the roots are well-drained and it has shelter from harsh winds. 

How To Use Acer Palmatum Sode Nishiki
Japanese Acer Sode Nishiki is a good choice for small to medium-sized gardens as it doesn’t grow too large and brings spectacular colour from spring to late autumn. Plant it as a specimen shrub or several together for a colourful feature. 

How To Care For Acer Palmatum Sode Nishiki
Japanese Acer Sode Nishiki is easy to grow in a sheltered, partially shady spot as harsh winds and hot sun will scorch the foliage.
Acers will grow in the majority of fertile soils that have plenty of drainage. They tend to prefer neutral to acid soil, so if yours is very chalky fill the planting hole with organic matter and mulch every year in spring. Container grown Japanese Acer Sode Nishiki will need regular water and food in the summer. 
There’s no need to prune acers as they naturally grow in an elegant shape but any damaged branches can be trimmed back in winter.
