Description Plant Care Q & A Suggested Sundries Description
Acer palmatum 'Japanese Sunrise' is another new introduction with pale yellow-green leaves in spring, maturing to deep lush-green in summer followed by a magnificent orange autumn colour.  Acer palmatum ‘Japanese Sunrise’ has a lovely compact upright habit and is suitable for smaller gardens and is a fairly slow grower and doesn’t reach large sizes.  

As with most Japanese maples, tolerant of full sun to part shade, happy in most fertile soils, we recommend adding ericaceous compost when planting followed by a top-dressing of a good general-purpose fertiliser.  Keep well-watered for the first three months until established.

Plant Care

Japanese Maples are best pruned when fully dormant (November to early February), as maples bleed sap from pruning cuts at other times, weakening the tree. However, pruning is still best kept to a minimum as the most graceful shape comes from a tree that has been allowed to develop fairly naturally. As a result, just remove badly-placed or crossing shoots to encourage a good framework of branches to form. Where you do need to reduce height and width, follow long branches back to a side branch and pruning it out at this point. This is not necessary on prostrate-growing trees because they should be allowed to spread naturally to gain the best effect.
