There is no other beauty like the Japanese Maple. Famous for their stunning fall colors, these trees bring a serene and peaceful ambience to any garden in every season. Their array of fall colors range from fiery reds and oranges to deep purples and chartreuse greens. We offer many varieties, shapes and sizes to bring a striking focal point to any garden landscape, patio or container garden. Easy to care for, this is a tree that will delight for years to come. Japanese maples are generally slow growers and the height listed is the maximum growth after ten years. To keep your Japanese maple healthy, make sure not to overwater after the first or second year!
||Slow growing. Reaches about 8 feet tall and wide over 10 years in the landscape; about 6 feet by 4 feet in a container.
||Upright, vase shaped
||Excellent for containers, small space gardens, accent or focal tree and patios.
||Part sun/part shade. Important to think about light exposure: Too much light can damage delicate leaves. Too little light, and some of the more colorful varieties will take on an attractive greenish tone, but not the brilliant fall red/purple colors. For best color, most maples need a location with part day's sun or at least high light.
||Moist, organically rich, slightly acidic, well-drained soil. Prefers consistent moisture: Mulch will help retain moisture. Don't let soil dry out, nor become waterlogged.
