Regular price $110.00 Sale

Acer palmatum 'Shaina', commonly known as the Shaina Japanese Maple, is a compact and ornamental deciduous tree celebrated for its striking foliage and graceful form. This variety features deeply lobed leaves that emerge a vibrant crimson-red in spring, maintain their rich colour through summer, and intensify to a brilliant scarlet in autumn. Typically reaching a height of 1 to 2 metres with a similar spread, this tree is perfect for small gardens, containers, and as a focal point in garden beds.

Thriving in well-draining, fertile soil and partial shade to full sun, Acer palmatum 'Shaina' 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 'Shaina' is ideal for Australian gardeners seeking a compact and low-maintenance tree that provides year-round interest. Its vibrant foliage and graceful, upright form make it an excellent choice for small landscapes, urban gardens, and patio settings
