Acer autumn triumph
 Share this article on

Acer Autumn is our stunning Autumn Colours competition winner. Congratulations to Ed Alderam from East Sussex who captured this magical layering of colours on a visit to Westonbirt Arboretum. The picture includes an Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum) and Ironwood (Parrotia persica).

Ed is a gardener/horticulturist and the current Christopher Lloyd Scholar at Great Dixter House. He had completed a work experience placement at Westonbirt Arboretum while studying at college, so knew it would be the ideal location to take a picture!
