This small tree not only provides a beautiful shape for a feature, but the leaves are delicately filigree like long, lacy fingers. These are dark green in summer, turning yellow and orange in autumn. The stems are dark purple. Maples always prefer a sheltered spot away from cold winds, which tends to burn their foliage. It can also be grown in a container, but make sure it's well-watered.
