How quickly do Acer palmatum grow?
Japanese maples can grow to 8m (26ft) in fifty years, depending on growing conditions, but most are small, slow-growing trees rarely more than 1-2m (3¼ft-6½ft) in height – ideal for the smaller garden or a container. After thinking about what height and shape you would like, think about the leaf colour.
Do acers like morning sun?
They’re best in dappled shade too. Like Camellias – early morning sun after frost can be an issue, so shelter it from that sort of position – other planting, walls and fences etc will do that.
