Acer palmatum Atropurpureum - height question
I treated myself today and bought one of these from my local nursery; it's about 3 foot tall.
The ultimate height is stated at 4 - 8 metres, but I know they grow very slowly.
I'm planting it in a new empty bed and am trying to work out how much space to give it now. My thinking is that I could plant some perennials close enough to it now as they'll be long gone by the time the acer gets to any meaningful height. Is that correct?
Would appreciate some thoughts on this?
