Acer palmatum are relatively slow growing, so choosing a mature version is advantageous as it gives you a significantly sized feature tree without any need to wait. These semi mature and mature Japanese Maple trees (up to 2 metres in height) have all received expert care and professional pruning during their development to make wonderfully shaped trees with fantastic foliage.
These semi mature and mature Japanese Maple trees have all been grown by skilled horticulturalists on the nursery for a number of years, ready to sell on to you once they are mature enough.
