Autumn Acer palmatum 'Shaina'. Favourite acers and in this photo they tried to caputure the elegance of its shape and the beauty of its autumn colour change in the lovely October sunshine. This acer has an unusual dwarf, bushy, tufted habit and beautiful small leaves. The leaves of 'Shaina' are the same dark red all summer, but when autumn arrives the colour turns a luminescent shade of crimson-red. Beautiful, I love it!!
