Boasting a dense, compact branching structure, spring foliage with a bright red flush that darkens with maturity, and an outstanding fall colour of orange and red, this plant has all the makings of an excellent garden specimen.
Best planted in a well-drained soil with high organic matter. Japanese maples are grown as specimen trees or multi-stemmed plants. Any pruning should be done in summer. Mulch well, but avoid heaping mulch against the stem. Most cultivars need full sun or light afternoon shade.
