Acer palmatum is a deciduous, woody shrub native to parts of Asia and Russia. There are many garden-worthy cultivars available, which have been bred for their leaf shapes and colours.
Acer palmatum var. dissectum is a stunning Japanese maple, grown for its fine, lace-like filgree leaves. Green in summer, these turn rich shades of yellow in autumn. The tree typically forms a gentle weeping habit, making it well-suited to growing at the edge of a pond.
For best results, grow Acer palmatum 'Butterfly' in moist but well-drained soil in partial shade. Protect it from the harshest winds, which may cause leaf scorch.
