PresentationPoint is proud to deliver services to this special auction to help these children. The proceeds from this tree will be used for the purchase of a holiday home, where we will offer these families a carefree holiday in a safe environment.
A Very Unique Tree
The Japanese name of this tree translates as ‘cascading leaf of the rice plant’. This slow-growing shrub with an irregular spreading growth habit rarely grows into a tree with multiple stems. Our tree is 80 years old, 4 meters high, has a spread of 5 meters, and takes on spectacular fall colors. The leaves are burgundy red and hold on to their color through the summer. In fall they turn deep red to orange-red. The flowering period is May. This plant is fully hardy.
A special feature of this tree is its low-hanging branches so it needs to stand higher and is delivered in a beautiful pot. An ideal tree to provide shelter or to find rest beside on a bench.
This Acer is a honey plant, supplying bees with food by producing pollen and nectar. The special thing about this tree is that it fully takes care of itself. The inner branches grow old and wither and fall off by themselves.
