Regular price $110.00 Sale

Acer palmatum 'Elegans', commonly known as the Elegans Japanese Maple, is a sophisticated and graceful deciduous tree admired for its elegant form and stunning seasonal colour changes. This variety features finely dissected, deeply lobed leaves that emerge soft green in spring, transforming to lush, vibrant green in summer, and culminating in a spectacular display of gold, red, and orange hues in autumn. Typically reaching a height and spread of 4 to 6 metres, this tree makes a striking focal point in any garden.

Thriving in well-draining, fertile soil and partial shade to full sun, Acer palmatum 'Elegans' is well-suited to various Australian climates, particularly in regions with cooler winters. It prefers a sheltered position, protected from strong winds and intense afternoon sun, which can scorch its delicate foliage. Regular watering is essential, especially during dry spells, to maintain the soil's moisture without becoming waterlogged.

Acer palmatum 'Elegans' is perfect for Australian gardeners seeking a refined and versatile tree. Its beautifully textured foliage and graceful form make it ideal for garden beds, borders, and as a standalone specimen.
