Attractive acer foliage. (Acer palmatum (Japanese maple))

I just love the addition of acers to the garden.

The pergola acts as a good frame for the plants, I think. I love the contrast of the red rhododendron flowers. So pretty!

Lovely spring colour of you Japanese maple Kate. Getting to be a good size too. I also like your cider jar and your lighting. The rhododendron is pretty too. Lovely scene all together.

Thank you, Klahanie, I’m pleased you like the overall effect in this tiny corner. This acer was in a pot a few years back next to the pond..decided to try it planted out.
The little cider pot did have a small hebe in which had died so I’ve resited a fern into the pot...hoping it ‘springs into action’ soon.

Looks really Japanese with the end of the pergola there. I love the Acers and they are so colourful at this time of year with all the new leaves sprouting.

Thanks Linda, I think it sort of subconsciously evolved into a Japanese styled corner, which I'm pleased with.
Have to agree, they are looking pretty spectacular at the minute aren't they! Think acers are definitely a favourite on the site.
