deciduous shrub popular for its bamboo-like appearance. Its vase-shaped habit rounds with maturity. The narrow-lobed, deeply dissected, strap-like or bamboo-like leaves are deep red in spring and well into summer, then they bronze and turn green, only to become scarlet in autumn. Acer palmatum 'Beni-otake' likes moist, but well-drained soil. It tolerates full sun, but leaves are the most beautiful when it is in partial shade. It’s hardy but has to be protected from hardh winds and frost. Lack of moisture and excessive exposure can cause leaf scorch. Easy to maintain. No need for regular pruning. This beautiful vivid decorative tree is perfect for small yards, urban gardens, or as a front yard accent. It is also suitable for growing in pots and containers.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
