The finely dissected foliage of this compact Japanese maple emerges each spring with a distinct pink flush, before becoming bronze-green and then green. In late summer red winged fruits develop and then in autumn, the leaves change colour again, this time to a vibrant red before they fall. 'Jerre Schwartz' has an upright habit, and will look great in a large pot on the patio, or use it as a specimen in the border or lawn. Underplant it with snowdrops or crocus to get year round interest.
- Garden care: Add a top dressing of a multi-purpose fertiliser around the base of the plant in late spring. No routine pruning is required, just remove any dead, damaged or crossing branches in late autumn or winter when they are fully dormant.
