A handsome Acer bearing finely dissected, light foliage which emerges bright orange-red and develops into shades of green, pink and orange in the summer and then turns a bright yellow with orange hues in the autumn. The combination of mature and new leaves through the summer gives a multicoloured appearance.
For best results, grow it in full sun or partial shade. It will grow to an estimated height and spread of 2m.
Like all Maples Acer palmatum 'Baldsmith' doesn't require any pruning routine. Remove any dead or damaged branches. The best time to prune is the late autumn or winter when the plant is fully dormant.
In late spring you may add a top dressing of a multi-purpose fertiliser around the base of the plant.
