Commonly Asked Questions

Will the foliage change colour during Autumn with Acer Sensation? 

The leaves on Acer Sensation maples will change from lush green to stunning orange, yellow and soft red tones. This particular Maple is known to have one of the most spectacular Autumn colour transformations, making it a popular choice.


Are Acer Sensation Maples suitable for planter pots

Sensation is one of the larger growing maple varieties unsuitable for planter pots. Instead, they are best used as Specimen / Feature trees. They also create striking avenue planting along driveways.


Do I need to prune my Acer Sensation?

There is no need to prune your Maple; sit back and enjoy the glorious natural form of your Japanese Maple. Pruning can be effective if you want to open your Maple into a specific canopy shape. Otherwise, it’s best left alone to Mother Nature.
