Acer Brilliantissimum is a beautiful small tree is the perfect choice if you are looking for a colourful maple that won't take up much space.
Brilliantissium has many of the features of the large maples - interesting leaf shapes, attractive colour throughout the season, easy to grow in almost any situation, and a handsome presence - but in a small package.
The new spring leaves have a salmon-pink colour, which turns to pale green over the summer.
We sometimes offer top-worked forms of this tree, which enhance the dense mop-head canopy on a longer stem and will not grow much beyond 3m or so.
You can pre-order items now for delivery when the new season starts in September,you won't be asked to pay until nearer the time.

Illustrative example of a pot-grown tree of this variety as supplied.
Trees should reach their mature height after about 10 or more years.
Leaves may not be present during winter, and we may prune some shoots to fit the delivery carton. Size may vary during the season and between batches.
The container (if supplied) is only used for transporting the tree, which should then be planted out in the garden or in a much larger patio planter (not all species are suitable for patio planting).
Fill in the details below and we will let you know when Brilliantissimum maple is back in stock.
Although best planted out in the garden, this variety is slow-growing and also suitable for growing in a large planter.
