Acer palmatum 'Beni-tsukasa' is a remarkable Maple from a bud break to a leave fall. The foliage changes the season after season. It opens up a bright peach to yellow-red and turns pink and red with green shades in late spring to mature to green in summer.
Autumn colour is stunning red. This slow-growing variety of upright habit is ideal to grow in a container or small garden.
Acer palmatum 'Beni-tsukasa' can reach 3.5m in height and width. It would prefer slightly acidic soil in sheltered part of a garden.
Like all Maples Acer japonicum 'Attaryi' 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.
