    Fjellheim Dwarf Coral Bark Japanese MapleAbout Dwarf Coral Bark Japanese Maple...

    If you like the Coral Bark Japanese Maple but don't have room for it, meet Fjellheim - he's the dwarf cousin that can fit in much smaller spaces! So, how do you say "Fjellheim"? Well, the "j" is silent...so it goes like this: "FELL-Hime." Anyway, we just call it the Dwarf Coral Bark Maple...and it is a dwarf - growing to only 8 feet tall by about half that in width. Just as with its larger cousin, the stems and branches turn an outstanding coral-red color when cooler weather sets in for the winter. In spring, lime green leaves emerge that contrast beautifully with coral bark. Yellow fall foliage. Will tolerate more sun than other varieties.

    Culture & Care

    When provided the right environment in the landscape Japanese Maples are very easy to grow and care for, and long lived.

    Soil - Japanese maples adapt well to many soil types provided there is good drainage. Consistently wet or soggy soils can be a killer.

    Sun -  Some varieties will tolerate full sun. However, in their natural habitat, Japanese Maples are understory trees, growing in dappled forest sunlight and at the edges of partially shaded woodlands. Ideally they prefer to be grown in similar conditions, especially in the warmer climate of the Deep South.

    Pruning - When a specific variety of Japanese maple is planted in the right size space; where it have room to grow to mature size, rarely will it require pruning. That beings said, removal of damaged or stray branches that spoil the form of the tree can be performed almost any time of year. Heavy or major pruning is best left to professionals. If you hire someone to prune your Japanese maple make sure he/she has the credentials and ALWAYS check references.

    Water - During the first two summers after planting a Japanese Maple, make sure to water enough to keep soil damp but not soggy. Constantly wet feet can cause serious problems. Proper planting method can ensure proper drainage over the long term.
