The fiery red, orange and yellow leaves of Acer palmatum ‘Katsura’ provide a stunning splash of colour in the back garden. The leaves will turn a beautiful shade of green but will retain some of the orangey shades, before ‘bursting into flames’ again for a final autumnal display.

Great tree for a small garden, reaching approximately 2.5m only.
