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.

ALPINE SILVER THREAD UPRIGHT JAPANESE MAPLE

Acer palmatum 'Alpine Silver Thread'

Buy Alpine Silver Thread Upright Japanese Maple online. Alpine Silver Thread Upright Japanese Maple is a great introduction into the Japanese Maple spectrum, as it is light colored than its relative 'Shigitatsu Sawa'. It features awesome white and light green variegation in the spring that are accented by dark green veins. Leaves can fade to green in the summer months, and should still have some variegation to them. Fall color can vary from bright yellow to golden-orange. This is truly a showstopper for any landscape or for the Japanese Maple connoisseur.
