£2.00£4.50 inc. VAT

Trident Maple or Acer buergerianum is a  Japanese style Maple with three lobed bright green leaves with yellow undersides. They are quite thick and fleshy feeling. Superb red, purple, orange and yellow tints develop in the autumn. Perfect for bonsai, though used in Japan as a street tree since it makes quite a narrow crown. It can be grown as a multi-stem tree too and develops peeling bark when mature.
