Acers, or Japanese maples are the perfect choice for any garden style or size.
I believe that there is a tree for any garden, no matter how big the plot is – or even if there’s only a small balcony space.
They have lovely colour and texture, making them the perfect focal point in a garden, brightening up a dark corner as a striking feature tree. They look elegant when draping over a path or overhanging a pool or water feature, giving a really calming effect.
Japanese maples are more compact, suitable for the smallest of gardens and containers too. Their versatility means they are perfect in an oriental garden design as well as any other garden styles as there are many leaf shapes to choose from and colours too, in reds, browns, greens, oranges and purples. The foliage turns incredible rich tones in autumn, going through shades of fiery reds, oranges and gold.
