I love pottering in my garden and have recently gone maple mad. However, I am looking for a semi-dwarf acer that does not turn green in summer. Quite a tall order! Most plants are green and it gets a tad boring. Does anyone know of one?



i am know goodat names but i know there is ared acer that has those realy fine leaves that tends to spread out rather than up . i havea green version . i dont know the latin namesas im dyslexic but im sure someone will know the egsact names of any known acers you want .

The red version of Acer palmatum var. dissectum atroperpurpureum remains red all through the summer unless you put in deep shade. Copy and paste the link below into your web browser.

Bloodgood stays red all year too, but it does get bigger eventually.
