Acer palmatum ‘Deshojo’

Japanese Maple

Acer palmatum, often known as Japanese maple, are deciduous trees and shrubs suitable for planting both in the ground or in containers. The many cultivars span a whole spectrum of colours and styles, making them easy to fit aesthetically into any setting.

Acer palmatum ‘Deshojo’ is a tree with wide 5 lobed leaves. In spring it emerges a luminous salmon pink, turning green in summer and finally becoming a brilliant scarlet and orange in autumn, giving ‘Deshojo’ a wide range of seasonal interest. In addition to the attractive foliage, small red flowers appear in spring, sometimes followed by wing shaped fruits in autumn.

Expert Tip

It's advisable to add a layer of mulch around the base of Japanese maples. The mulch helps reduce moisture loss in the soil and, because the roots are very shallow, the summer sun can damage the roots if not mulched.

Care & Size Guidance

Acer palmatum ‘Deshojo’ needs a sheltered position, out of cold winds, and it is intolerant of chalk. The colour of the leaves appears best in part shade, though full sun can be tolerated with enough watering. Excessive sun exposure can scorch the leaves when they are young.
