Acer ‘Flamingo’ with its pink edged leaves was looking gorgeous in the autumn sunshine today. Acer ‘Flamingo’ makes a stunning plant in a pot or the garden border.
I can’t get enough of Acers! In the Spring the fresh young leaves light up the garden with youthful promise; the leaves dance around in the summer breeze like colourful handkerchiefs and in the Autumn their fiery colours give us the most spectacular natural fireworks display. People think they are difficult to look after, but all you need to do is protect them from cold winds in winter and strong sun in summer.
