Acer palmatum 'Little Red' is a small, compact, upright tree with leathery, lace-like, palmate, deeply lobed, red leaves, bright red in spring, deep maroon in summer, and fiery red in autumn. Small, inconspicuous flowers are followed by winged fruits. Japanese Maple ‘Little Red’ grows best in fertile, organically rich, slightly acidic, moist and well-drained soils. It prefers partial shade, but can withstand full sun. It thrives in sheltered, partially sunny spots and best leaf colour is achieved in partial shade. It is resistant to frost, but needs to be sheltered form harsh winter winds. Generally, pest-free and disease-free. Low maintenance plant. Pruning is not even recommended because it may ruin its natural shape. Acer palmatum 'Little Red' is a new Japanese maple variety, a beautiful and tough ornamental tree with amazing colours. It is perfect for small, informal, cottage, and urban gardens. Great for beds and borders. Excellent for growing in pots and containers.

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).
