Acer palmatum 'Shojo nomura' is a distinct colour form. It has a light bronze-red foliage in early spring. In the summer there is an undertone of green but it is strong over-shadowed with a bright orange-red. In the autumn it turns bright scarlet.
This beautiful upright variety will grow to 3 m x 1.5 m
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.
