More about the Peaches And Cream Japanese Maple...

Peaches and Cream is a small, upright, vase-shape Japanese maple with wonderful color throughout the growing season. The new growth ranges in color from cream to peach to rose on light green leaves. This cultivar has reticulated leaves with veins that show prominently on each leaf.  Summer color tones similarly show shades of light green with peachy overtones. Fall colors mirror the spring and summer look with the leaves darker in color from gold to crimson. It's smaller size makes it an excellent choice for conatiners or smaller garden spaces.

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.
