The Acer palmatum ‘Atropurpureum’ is a deciduous tree grown for its leaves. 5 or 7 lobed gorgeous purple leaves that turn bright red in, Autumn. Their growth can be contained by keeping them in a pot so they are suitable for a small garden and patio although they are often planted as a specimen on a lawn or focal point in a garden.
Fully hardy, Acers require sun with some shade and fertile, well-drained soil. Thriving best in acid-to-neutral soil in a sheltered position is important, especially when young as the leaves can be damaged by wind. Prune lightly to keep their shape from September to October. Your tree will appreciate a good spring weed, mulch, and feed.
The tree is watered before being carefully packed by one of our experienced staff on site. It comes in a cardboard box lined with straw. (We try to use as much recycling material as possible) The box is addressed to the customer or a specified name and address and sent out overnight delivery to arrive on requested dates.
Please note the size of the tree that you are ordering, as our trees are provided for our clients to plant themselves, which may appear at a small size rather than the fully grown tree as shown in the photos.

My Japanese Maple tree arrived today. Gorgeous looking tree, lovely shape to it and clearly very healthy.
Delivery was really quick given the current covid-19 crisis, took just over a week from order to delivery, which I think is first class service.
Really happy with my tree and the whole service from Trees Direct.
This bare tree arrived with only 3 leaves
Japanese Maples lose their leaves over winter every year and new leaves will appear in early spring
Hope this helps
Arrived less than 3 days after ordering! Packed carefully, tree wrapped in straw though root ball currently very solid due to the severe cold.. hoping it’ll warm up gently.. it’s winter so dormant, but the potential shape is lovely andI look forward to seeing it wake up 🙂
Thank you Trees Direct – quickest service I’ve experienced in a year..
