Properties and uses:
The Japanese Maple ‘Ornatum’ is outstanding with its rounded, compact shape. Its lace like, filigree foliage changes colour every season. Pinkish-mauve to start with, it turns green in summer then becomes orangey-yellow in autumn.
This Acer is best planted on its own or in borders, in parks and gardens or terraced gardens, on north exposed terraces. Well known in the world of bonsai connoisseurs, the Japanese Maple Ornatum is also grown in containers, thanks to a few annual pruning.
