This Acer is a very slow grower. It is a red leaf variety and should withstand more sun than the green leaf variety. The leaves are deeply palmately inscised which gives them a feathery look. This plant shares the place with an azalia which flowers in the early spring. The red nature of the leaves conrasts well with the white and green of next door''s eononomus and does not block too much light from other plants in the small front garden.
