In addition to the comprehensive open-air assortment of over 400,000 trees, there is also an exclusive year-round choice of containerised plants. Lappen maintains a large assortment of plants for planting out in summer for gardeners who make spontaneous purchases. When ordered, Lappen will prepare the requested plants and hold them in Summer storage. These can then also be planted outside the dormancy period – which means that nothing stands in the way of flexible garden and landscaping design.
Among others, the Acer ginnala (Amur maple), Acer palmatum (palmate maple) and Acer japonicum ‘Aconitifolium’ (downy Japanese maple) are available in containers. Their filigree, fresh green foliage and fiery autumnal colouring add value to any garden and reflect the seasons intensively. They also add to the ambience on terraces, in rockeries and in public gardens with their beautiful variety of colours.
These plants grow particularly magnificently in sunny to changeable sunny/shady locations with fresh, slightly acidic, very permeable, sandy, humus-rich soils. For instance, the Acer palmatum (Japanese maple) prefers slightly raised locations and is suitable, as are many other Japanese maples, for creating colourful highlights in autumn.
