This dwarf Japanese Maple has distinctive, finely dissected leaves that emerge a bright pinkish red, before becoming bronze-green and then green. In autumn, they change colours to a vibrant red, before turning darker maroon then green as the leaf matures. It is a good choice for a small garden, or for growing in a pot.
