For many years I have been growing Acer palmatum 'Atropupureum' in a large pot and a wonderful show it has given me. I does, however, sometimes show damage to the leaves caused by the wind and I wonder if there is another variety that is a bit more wind resistant. Any thoughts?



Larger Acers such as Acer griseum don't have this problem - but all the japanese acers do.
