Acer Osakazuki also known as the Japanese Maple, and a recipient of the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit, is a superb large garden shrub or small deciduous tree, suitable for border planting schemes, or specimen within the lawned area, also suitable as patio/container plant for several years. Known mostly as one of the best colouring of Maples, its large, seven lobed, serrated leaves emerge a lush dark green early Spring, turning through various shades of bright scarlet towards the Autumn which lasts for several weeks. The dark green of the leaves in Spring create a wonderful backdrop to its small red flowers, followed by winged fruits.

Looking After Your Acer Palmatum Osakazuki

Generally pest and disease free, although may be affected by aphids during the Summer months, Acer Palmatum Osakazuki is an easy to grow small ornamental garden tree or large shrub and suitable in many if not all locations, from cottage planting schemes to town gardens and coastal areas. A low maintenance plant which can benefit from a partially shaded area away from any very cold winds, in most types of garden, prefering an acid or neutral soil which is fertile, moist and well drained. In Spring apply a good layer of garden mulch to help keep the soil moist in the drier Summer months, also  a good quality multi-purpose fertilizer to encourage strong, healthy, new growth in the coming season. Little if any pruning is required, although removal of any damaged or unwanted branches should be removed late Winter/early Spring whilst still in the dormant season.
