Acer palmatum ‘Hiryu’ (Flying Dragon Maple)

‘Hiryu’ is a beautiful upright Japanese acer with narrow, slightly twisted palmate leaves – hence its name. It has autumn colours of red, yellow and orange and would happily live in a pot. Works especially well with low growing broad leaved evergreens, the feathered leaves contrast and gently shake in the wind.

Happy in full sun to dappled shade. They do need a position with a cool, moist root run in fertile soil that is acid to neutral.

This is only meant as a guide. Please remember we're always on hand to give advice about plants and their frost hardiness.

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.
