Acer palmatum 'Sunset'

This is a small (2-3m) tree and the perfect shape over the pond. It is a lovely pinky purple during the summer and then goes bright red in autumn. It was nearly killed by the bamboo that was originally behind the Family sculpture (they don't like their roots disturbed) so the bamboo had to go. It took four days to remove.
