'Peve Dave' has a bushy, up-right form with deeply divided glossy leaves, that are reddish-purple in summer and turning bright orange-red in autumn. A striking specimen Acer.
Mature height 2.5m x 1.5m spread. Requires dappled shade and moist, well-drained soil.
Should be grown in moist but well-drained soil. Leaf colour is best in partial shade.
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.
