Acer palmatum

Acer palmatum – a deciduous tree of low growth 5-8m high and often branched from the lower level. The leaves are 4-12 cm large, deeply incised, with double serrated edges. There are deep cuts between the leaves, which make the leaf look like a wide open hand with outstretched fingers. The plant loves fertile soils rich in humus, moderately moist but slightly acidic and lots of light, although it tolerates a little shade.
