This Japanese maple is grown mainly for its spectacular autumn colour, perhaps the best of all the maples. It has an open habit, and its large, seven-lobed, bright green leaves turn brilliant scarlet in autumn and last for several weeks before falling. Preferring a sheltered, shady spot, ‘Osakazuki’ looks dramatic silhouetted against a tall hedge or modern building.
Ideal for the smaller garden, yet still capable of creating autumn drama in a large garden, Acer palmatum ‘Osakazuki’ is a small tree or large shrub with an attractive open habit. An expected maximum height of roughly 4 x 3 metres in 20 years. Prefers a slightly sheltered position avoiding full sun and windier spots.
