A beautiful weeping Acer with feathery, graceful leaves and dramatic colour. The crimson spring foliage remains red throughout summer then turns into bronze shades in autumn.
Planting in full sun or in partial shade affects the length of colour retention.
This lovely cultivar can reach 2m in height and spread.
Like all Maples Acer palmatum Dissectum 'Nigrum' AKA 'Ever Red' 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.
