Japanese Maple - Mystic Jewel

Price: £31.99

A unique variety of Japanese maple and not widely available - this is the ideal opportunity to get your hands on the next big thing in Acers!

The mysteriously coloured leaves of the aptly named 'Mystic Jewel' emerge purple on new growth and turn to green with a silver-grey hue as they mature, seeming to take on a glowing appearance that will light up any dull areas of your garden. Then in autumn the leaves turn to purple-red before falling in an inferno of vibrant colour.

With beautiful, palmate leaves and a gently spreading habit, this Japanese Maple is a slow growing shrub that reaches just 150-170cm (60-67in), making it the perfect specimen for containers on the decking, patio or balcony and for those of us with smaller gardens. It is easy to grow too, so there's no excuse for anyone not to give it a go!

Best planted in semi-shade for the best leaf colour, Mystic Jewel will tolerate sun as long as it's not direct, bringing an air of quiet sophistication to wherever it is planted.

Fully winter hardy, it's the ultimate in low maintenance plants, needing very little in the way of pruning except to remove any damaged or dying branches.

  • Supplied as an established plant in a 3 litre pot, ready for planting out.
  • Grows to 150-170cm (60-67in)
  • Plants are dormant in winter, so no leaves from approximately October until March.

I will never be able to express my appreciation for all the help Marie Curie gave to my mum, myself and my family. They were there for us when we needed it most. I can't put into words how amazing they were.
