Homeowner Growing & Maintenance

Japanese Maples are moderately easy to grow, and adapt to most conditions; however, they do prefer to be planted in an area that is well protected from wind, heat exposure, and drought like conditions. Feed once a year with a slow release fertilizer. To give your plant the best start possible, we include a free fertilizer packet.

Interesting Notes

Sango Kako Japanese Maple makes an excellent addition to any garden. The red bark contrasts well in the snow.Can be used around patios or in large containers around a deck.
