Acer Palmatum 'Skeeter's Broom' is a narrow, upright, deciduous shrub to 2m tall with five-lobed leaves that emerge bright red in spring, maturing to a deep purple-red in autumn before turning ruby-red in autumn.
Japanese Acers are deciduous trees and they grow well in moist shadier conditions and will tolerate acidic soil. Acer Palmatum Skeeter's Broom is no different: it will do best in well-drained, humus-rich soil, in a sheltered spot in partial or dappled shade. Avoid exposed sites as harsh winds could lead to leaf scorch.
