Japanese Acers

Common Name: Maple

Acers are a diverse and mostly hardy group of trees that are easy to grow in a wide range of soils. They thrive in sun or partial shade and include such delights as Japanese and Snake Bark maples. Spectacular leaves are their predominant feature with many developing brilliant autumn colour, especially the magnificent Acer rubrums from North America. Many Acers also have small, delicate flowers in spring.
