Japanese Maple 'Dissectum Garnet' The beautiful, dark red leaved Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum 'Garnet Dissectum') shrub is very striking in any garden. Distinctive for its magnificent, slender, dark red leaves. The fabulous colourful foliage of this hardy ornamental shrub looks wonderful on the patio or decking. As it grows fairly slowly it is very suitable for small gardens and can even be planted in a spacious pot or tub. Good resistance to the cold. Height supplied 30-40 cm.
How to Group Container Gardens Together Camouflage container elevators by placing shorter pots full of rounded mound-shape plants such as Lantana, Pentas, Melampodium, Profusion zinnia, or geranium in front of the elevators. To screen taller plant lifts, position misty-shape plants like Diamond Frost Euphorbia or Mexican feathergrass in front of the supporting objects.
