    A great price and product. I bought one
    of these two years ago. It is twice as high
    now and in great shape. Hot and thanks
    for the post.

    Purchased three of these a couple of years back, wind burn did for two of them, be careful where you plant them.
    Other one is still going, sheltered place helps.

    Same for us. They can't cope with any wind at all. We put outs right in corner of houses on the patio and wind still nailed it. Only buy if you have a very sheltered place for it.
    Mine gets absolutely battered by the wind & is fine
    Hope it's better behaved than their Knotweed.

    slow.

    Still sounds slow to me.

    Love these trees and I've tried a few times to grow them and gave up each time.

    Edit: Taken from RHS website:

    Japanese maples (Acer palmatum) are small, deciduous trees grown for their graceful habit, autumn colour and beautiful foliage which may be coloured or deeply dissected. Many acers grow extremely slowly and are perfect in a smaller garden, grown in large containers.
