Acer palmatum Garnet

Japanese Acer Garnet
  • Height 10 years: Up to 1.5m / 5ft
  • Leaf colour - autumn: Multiple tints

Garnet is a good example of the "dissectum" group of the species Acer palmatum. As the name suggests it features deeply cut leaves, which have an attractive shredded feather appearance.

The leaves are a light purple over the summer, taking on interesting tints in the autumn.

Garnet is one of the more vigorous forms of Acer palmataum var. dissectum, but it is still a slow-growing small tree - likely to reach 1.5m after 10 years, but often spreading more widely.
