Additional Information About Atrolineare Red Pygmy Japanese Maple

Acer Palmatum 'Atrolineare' is a slow and moderate growing tree that can be grown in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 6A through 9B. It matures to an average height of 6 feet to 12 feet and an average width of 4 feet to 8 feet, depending on climate and other environmental factors. It prefers growing in a location that provides morning sun with afternoon shade or filtered sun and grows best when planted in sand, loam, clay or silt soil that is well drained. The foliage is red in color. It attracts visual attention and is resistant to deer.

Atrolineare Japanese Maple can be useful in the landscape along woodland borders, in foundation plantings, in containers or planters, as an accent, under a shade tree, as a focal point, in landscape beds or islands, to frame the corners of a home or other building, to add property value or to accentuate entryways and also in theme gardens or shade gardens.

More about Atrolineare Japanese Maple...

Also called Red Pygmy, Atronlineare is a beautiful and ubiquitous Japanese maple native to eastern Asia. It features red, palmate (hand-shaped)  leaves that are divided into narrow finger-like lobes. The gray bark is attractive throughout the year.

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.

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.

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.
