Commonly Asked Questions

Will the foliage on Atropurpureum Maples change during Autumn?

The leaves on Atropurpureum maples will change from bronze/ burgundy to a crimson tone for Autumn. Because the leaves of this Maple are dark, the Autumn transformation is more subtle than with a green-tone Japanese Maple. Please note that colour change can differ yearly; it will also depend on your plant’s health and the plants.


Are Atropurpureum Japanese Maples suitable for planter pots?

Yes, they are. Be sure you are selecting a pot with plenty of room for the plant to grow; you may find that the pot size needs to be increased in a few years. Please note that, like with all plants, they will grow quicker in the ground than in a pot; however, if you have a small garden, courtyard, or paved area or are in a rental property, this can be a good thing, depending on your needs. Please ensure you use quality soil in your pot, slow-release fertilisers, and keep up the watering, as pots dry out more quickly than ground planting.


Do I need to prune my Japanese Maple?

There is no need to prune your Maple; just 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.
