Description

Aconitifolium or ‘fern leaf’ type is a lovely addition to any landscape with their unique deeply divided large leaves and absolutely brilliant fall colour. Stray breezes moving trought the foliage makes the leaves sway and flutter on their long leaf stems aptly giving it the horticultural common name of ‘Dancing Peacock’ maple.

How to germinate Acer seeds:

Sow thinly at 6 mm deep in a sandy peat layer; tamp firm. Cold stratify for 60-120 days. Keep moist. Add a thin layer of fine mulch to anchor seed down. Don’t let germinating seed freeze, dry out or migrate onto the surface as this is fatal. After cold stratification period is over, expose to spring conditions to promote germination. Good indirect light is best for seedlings. Protect seed/seedlings from rodents. I prick out seedlings when dormant and grow in individual pots for first 2-3 years for best results.
