There's something so enchanting and satisfying about witnessing a plant change its colours, and that's what you can expect with the Acer Palmatum Dissectum. Its feather-like foliage starts in a green shade and by autumn, is displaying rich gold and orange tones. Despite being a tree, it is fairly compact so will work well in patio pots in smaller gardens.

The Latin part of this plant's name, Palmatum, translates to mean 'leaf shaped like a hand'. It was and was named by Swedish botanist and physician, Carl Peter Thunberg, in the 18th century.

Position the Acer Palmatum Dissectum in partial shade as direct sunlight can scorch its leaves. Make sure its soil is well-drained. It won't require frequent pruning, so it makes for a great low maintenance plant.

Jo's Top Tip

Hydrate the Acer Palmatum Dissectum with rain water, instead of tap, as this is more acidic and will result in better leaf colour.

    It's not just the plants that we care about though, we're pretty proud of our market leading (sustainable) packaging too.
