Product Information

Acer palmatum 'Orange Dream' is a striking acer which boasts an ever-changing spectacle of colour throughout the year.

The stunning, ever-changing foliage of this Japanese maple changes colour throughout the year, producing an amazing variety of tones at different seasons, bright orange in spring, greenish in summer and orange yellow in the autumn.

Even in winter, when it loses its leaves, Orange Dream continued to thrill with its interesting, bright green bark.
This beautiful and highly desirable Acer shrub is slow growing and difficult to propagate so can often be very expensive, so we're delighted to be able to bring this garden gem to you.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.

Fully hardy even in the coldest winters, Acer Orange Dream will explode with incredible colour in spring with bright orange new growth. A great specimen shrub this Japanese Maple is slow growing and easy to maintain, ideal for small gardens or large containers so anyone can grow it even where space and time is limited.

Supplied as an established plant in a 10.5cm pot ready to plant out. Growing to around 3m tall over 20 years.

Top Tips

  • Leaf colour is best in partial shade, although full sun will be tolerated.

Care Information

Planting Advice for your Acer palmatum 'Orange Dream':

  • If your soil is slightly acidic, then you have the perfect conditions to grow Japanese maples - however do not worry if you have not as most can be grown in other soils as long as they are not wet, dry or very alkaline.
  • If growing in a pot, use a 50/50 mix of ericaceous and multipurpose compost if you can - although again don't worry overly about this.
  • If planting in the garden, prepare a wide hole and loosen the soil with a fork, incorporating organic matter as needed to improve moisture retention and condition.
  • Plant your Acer so that the top of the root ball is just slightly below ground level.
  • Fill the planting hole with soil and heel well in. Water well.

Aftecare advice for your Acer:

  • Leaf colour is best in partial shade, although full sun can be tolerated as long as the plant is well watered.
  • Avoid exposed places as leaves can suffer with windburn (scorch), especially if the plant is dry.
  • Allow your Japanese Maple to get used to a whole day in the sun by starting it off in the shade, then standing it in its final sunny spot (in pot or in the garden soil) for one hour longer every day for a week.
  • Water regularly and deeply.
  • Feed with our specialist Acer feed.
  • Mulch every couple of years with well-rotted garden compost or well-rotted manure or leaf mould.
  • Acers generally do not need pruning, just remove any branches that are dead or damaged.
