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

Trident Maple is a very nice medium size tree. Maintains a very full shape with little or no pruning. Definitely a specimen tree and a nice addition to any landscape. .Photos Courtesy of OSU Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture and Sooner Plant Farm. Order now, supplies are limited.
