ACER PALMATUM ATROPURPUREUM
Grown for its tiny purple spring flowers and spectacular red purple foliage that turns darkest fiery crimson in autumn, this beautiful tree is a superb specimen with a slow growing, compact rounded habit that makes it ideal for growing in small gardens and containers. This variety also makes a very attractive bonsai tree.
These seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and cold-stored for several months. They should be sown into well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and covered to their own depth with sand or grit. No artificial heat is needed; the seed tray is best left in a cool spot outside and kept moist. Seeds germinate very slowly indeed in the spring after a chilling in the cold compost, regardless of when they are sown. Some seeds may take more than a year to germinate.
