This delightful, rare Japanese Maple is a most desirable and widely unknown dwarf. It forms a broad, rounded shrub reaching 3 feet in height with an equal or wider spread. New foliage is a light yellow-green, but is heavily marked around the margins with a broad area of bright purple-red, shading gradually into the leaf blade. As the leaves mature, they become solid green. As cooler weather approaches, the leaves develop gold or blends of orange and pink flushed, with the veins of a contrasting red. Great for alpine plantings, container culture, and bonsai.

Japanese maples stand out best when they are planted as a single specimen or in small groupings. Use them to accentuate an entryway or as a focal point to draw attention to a certain area of the landscape or home. Be careful not too overcrowd your Japanese Maple. We suggest underplanting with dwarf, low growing shrubs or groundcovers.

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.
