Acer Palmatum Dissectum ‘Orangeola’

The allure of our Acer palmatum dissectum ‘Orangeola’ is partly found in its softly mound-forming and coarsely-dissected, filigree leaves. This cut leaf weeping maple gives you three fantastic, distinct colours as the year progresses. Beginning a bashful orange in the spring, maturing to bronze in the summer and intensifying to a final radiant fizz of orange as they fall in autumn. An industrious little number, it continually produces new leaves throughout the year: these emerge with abundance, coloured orange and contrast beautifully with the existing deeper-toned, mature leaves.

We love it for its versatility as well. Its arching branches and weeping canopy make it a super choice for a generous pot or planter, close to the house or a courtyard bench, where the fine leaves can really be admired up close. As part of a more expansive garden design, it is perfect for combining with an evergreen underplanting scheme. It can also be grown to be more compact should you be after a more dominant punctuation of colour and shape or into a more radiating and architectural structure trained as a multi-stem.

Growing to around 2m tall and 1.5m across, ‘Orangeola’ will reliably give you colour and structure all year round wherever it is situated in your garden. Does best in partial shade, in moist well drained clay, loamy or sandy soil. Any pruning should be done in the summer.

N.B. When clipping several plants with the same tool, have a bucket containing a 5% bleach solution and swish your blades around for 30 seconds between plants to sterilise them. This will help avoid the chance of cross contamination of disease.

As with all woody plants, plant high, exposing as much of the taper at the base of the trunk as possible. Allowing soil to accumulate round the base of a tree can be fatal. Keep very well watered when first planted.

Please remember that these coloured labels are only a rough guide.

General Point about Plant Hardiness: The commonly held belief that it's better to 'plant small' is perfectly true with herbaceous plants, but not necessarily true with woody plants. They need some 'wood' on them to survive severe cold - so plants of marginal hardiness in very cold areas should really be planted LARGER, rather than smaller, wherever possible.
