Acer palmatum 'Kagiri-nishiki' is a small, deciduous, slow-growing, vase-shaped shrub with a compact, narrow habit and unique, attractive foliage. Five-lobed, grey-green leaves with cream-pink margins, turn crimson-gold in autumn. Corymbs of inconspicuous pinkish-red pendent flowers bloom in April and May, and are followed by winged fruit. It grows well in moist, well-drained, slightly acidic soil. It prefers partial shade, but tolerates full sun very well. It needs to be sheltered from harsh winds. Easy to care for, it requires very little pruning. Lack of soil moisture or excessive exposure can cause leaf scorch. Acer palmatum 'Kagiri-nishiki' is great as a specimen plant, perfect for cottage and urban gardens, suitable for growing in containers and pots. It is very decorative and eye-catching, especially in autumn.

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).
