Acer palmatum 'Burgundy Lace' is a striking variety. This medium-size tree of spreading habit has almost ribbonlike lobes and burgundy wine coloured foliage. A perfect Acer to grow in a pot or to add Japanese feel to the garden.
'Burgundy Lace' can reach 6 m in height and spread. Although upright, it is classed in the smaller tree group. Hardy and beautiful, it makes an excellent contrast with other upright cultivars.
Should be grown in moist but well-drained soil. Leaf colour is best in partial shade but the full sun can be tolerated.
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 spring you may add a top dressing of a multi-purpose fertiliser or organic matter around the base of the plant.
