When to plant



Introduced by Fratelli Ghiradelli and named after his son, this tree provides a big splash of colour and thrives with full sun. At last a yellow tree for the colder climates!

A deciduous vigorous upright tree grown for its lovely unusual yellow leaves all summer. It thrives in sun unlike most of its relations. Their growth can be contained by keeping in a pot so they are suitable for a small garden and patio although they are can be planted as a specimen on a lawn or focal point in a garden.

Fully hardy, they like slightly acidic, well-drained fertile moisture rich soil.

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 in September to October. Your tree will appreciate a good spring weed, mulch and feed.
