We have had our 'Abigail Rose' in full sun in our trial garden here in Georgia, and it has done extremely well! We do get a late summer push, which I will tidy up in late winter. Excellent choice for Southern gardens.

This plant must be grafted/bud-grafted to come true. Seed however, is fun to collect and to grow on. Always label your seedlings as well, i.e., "Acer palmatum 'Abigail Rose' (seedling #1).
