Nishiki momiji Japanese maple is a lovely selection with the upright, spreading habit and an attractive, bright green foliage during the summer. The leaves emerge pinkish and retain hints of pink. They turn fiery red in the autumn. A superb accent tree for any garden.
It can reach 5m x 5m at maturity but grows slowly.
Grow in sun or partial shade.
Like all Maples Acer palmatum 'Nishiki Momiji' 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.
