Acer palmatum 'Katsura' is a stunning Japanese maple variety known for its vibrant foliage and elegant form. It is a popular choice for gardeners in the Irish climate due to its adaptability and striking visual appeal.

Height/Spread: Acer palmatum 'Katsura' typically reaches a height of 10-15 feet (3-4.5 meters) with a spread of 8-12 feet (2.5-3.5 meters). Its compact size makes it suitable for gardens of various sizes and allows it to be grown in containers as well.

Position: This Japanese maple thrives in partially shaded to shaded positions, making it ideal for Irish gardens with limited direct sunlight. It appreciates protection from harsh winds to prevent leaf damage and maintain its graceful appearance.

Soil: Acer palmatum 'Katsura' prefers well-drained, acidic to neutral soil. In the Irish climate, it is essential to provide organic matter, such as compost or well-rotted manure, to improve soil fertility and moisture retention.

Flowering Season: While Acer palmatum 'Katsura' is not primarily grown for its flowers, it does produce inconspicuous, small reddish-purple blooms in spring. However, its true beauty lies in the stunning display of foliage.

Uses: Acer palmatum 'Katsura' is prized for its ornamental value and is often used as a focal point in gardens or as a specimen tree. Its delicate, lacy foliage emerges in spring with shades of pink, orange, and yellow, gradually maturing to a vibrant green in summer. In autumn, the leaves transform into a captivating blend of yellow, orange, and red hues, adding a dramatic touch to the Irish landscape. This variety of Japanese maple is highly sought after by gardeners for its aesthetic appeal and ability to bring vibrant colors to the Irish climate.
