Acer palmatum 'Red Pygmy', commonly known as the Red Pygmy Japanese Maple, is a compact and vibrant deciduous tree renowned for its slender, ribbon-like leaves and striking seasonal colour changes. This variety features narrow, deeply lobed leaves that emerge rich red in spring, deepen to a bronze-green in summer, and turn fiery shades of red and orange in autumn. Typically reaching a height and spread of 1.5 to 2 metres, this tree is perfect for small gardens, containers, and bonsai.

Thriving in well-draining, fertile soil and partial shade to full sun, Acer palmatum 'Red Pygmy' 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 'Red Pygmy' is ideal for Australian gardeners seeking a small, low-maintenance tree that provides year-round interest. Its unique, finely textured foliage and compact size make it a standout addition to garden beds, borders, and containers
