Acer palmatum ‘Osakazuki’
Perhaps the most loved of the green leafed Japanese Maple Melbournes, Acer palmatum Osakazuki is often said to have the best red Autumn foliage of all. A neat small tree, growing to 4m tall, thatﾒs character and form is strong enough to work in contemporary gardens as well as the Japanese inspired. Springs new growth is touched with copper, but it is when the green foliage of Summer transitions to Autumn tones that this tree is at its most striking. The delicate leaves takes on the most brilliant crimson colour that on a bright, sunny day glows in the landscape. This is a marvelous tree to be the centerpiece of a protected courtyard or charming passers by in a front garden.
