Deciduous, upright tree with pale grey bark and fresh green, three lobed leaves in spring changing to rich orange/red in autumn.

STYLE : Upright tree suitable for most styles but particularly good for root-over-rock.

WARNING : Roots have high moisture content and so can easily suffer frost damage. Prevent freezing of roots by over-wintering in sheltered area.

Care Info

REPOT : Every 1-3 years depending on age, in early spring just prior to bud burst.

SOIL : Free draining soil such as Akadama

PRUNE : Early spring, a couple of weeks prior to repotting. Mid summer branch pruning drives strong adventituious growth.

PINCH : Should be carried out throughout the growing season.

WATER : Daily throughout growing season but infrequently during winter months to prevent frost damage to the roots.

FEED : Balanced feed during spring summer. Low nitrogen in autumn as nitrogen will reduce foliage colour intensity.

WARNING : Roots have high moisture content and so can easily suffer frost damage. Prevent freezing of roots by over-wintering in sheltered area.
