Acer palmatum 'Aoyagi'

Acer palmatum 'Aoyagi' (Japanese Maple)

Common Name

Japanese Maple


Any non alkaline soil. Correct light more important


Sun or partial shade



Action and Timing

A collector’s plant, Aoyagi differs little from “Ukon” as far as I can see, still a very good form.

Nursery Notes

Grafted plant


Dramatic plant with stems as green as 'senkaki' is red, the foliage is almost luminescent and I really like this easy grower that is suitable for companion planting at the back of a border particularly. Very upright then spreads a little.

This plant was added to the database on 25th December, 2009.
