Acer palmatum 'Crimson Queen' is a deciduous shrub or a small tree with a bushy cascading habit and a weeping form. Its lacy foliage, delicately dissected into 7 or 9 lobed leaves, is known for holding its beautiful deep red colour the entire growing season. In late autumn, just before the leaves fall off, it becomes bright scarlet. It is easily grown in moist, well-drained, slightly acidic soil, in partial shade, but it tolerates full sun very well. Easy to care for, it requires very little pruning. Lack of soil moisture or excessive exposure can cause leaf scorch. This attractive dwarf weeping tree looks beautiful when planted beside a steam or a pond. Its elegant foliage and dramatic colour makes it a stunning specimen plant. Great addition to small yards, urban gardens, and rock gardens. It is also suitable for growing in 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).
