Acer ‘Purple Japanese Maple’

Acer palmatum 'atropurpureum' (Purple Japanese Maple)

Full Sun Part Shade Decidous


A small, dense tree with excellent year-round colour. Magnificent bronze-purple foliage is combined with a good shape and a useful size to make an attractive specimen tree for a protected area in the landscape. Foliage is a five-lobed, rich crimson-red new leaves in spring, turning to bronze-green in summer, and then finally to rich crimson-red in autumn.

Adaptable to a range of soil types, but prefers a moist, well-drained soil. Should not be planted in exposed areas where hot summer winds may stress the tree, as leaves may suffer scorch in very hot sun. Atropurpureum forms of maple are often sold as seedlings (which may vary in colour). However Fleming’s stock of this cultivar has been grafted from selected plant material, to obtain a uniform high colour  standard.

  • Full sun position sheltered from hot winds.
  • Grows approx. 3.5 x 3m.
  • Deep purple to crimson red foliage throughout the year.
