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 free fertilizer with every order.

Interesting Notes

A very nice smaller to medium size tree. Good for planting in areas with limited space.Photos Courtesy of OSU Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture and Sooner Plant Farm.
