Acer shirasawanum 'Aureum' (Japanese Maple) - This outstanding maple has eye-catching soft golden-yellow leaves with hanging, coral red flowers in spring. In autumn the leaves turn to beautiful shades of pink and orange. The leaves are also delightful in spring as they emerge when they are said to glow with colour. This is an excellent standalone plant for nearly any garden and can also be grown in a large container or pot (if well looked after). Slow growing.
