Acer japonicum 'Aconitifolium' or full-moon maple is an elegant tree and one of the best maples for autumn leaf colour. This stunning variety is best for adding architectural interest to any garden. The leaves are large, rounded mid green and turn breathtaking shades of orange and red in autumn.
Like all Maples, this one is very easy to maintain. It 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 autumn you may add a top dressing of a multi-purpose fertiliser or organic matter around the base of the plant.
