  1. NW - Jul 18, 2010
    Arkansas (Hardiness Zone: 1)

    We have one of these and the growth rate has been great, and as stated drought resistant, and great fall color. So far it has been more spreading than our Autumn Blaze. I have to say I like this tree a little bit better than Autumn Blaze. HIGHLY recommend this tree.

  2. Sandra - Sep 23, 2010
    Wisconsin (Hardiness Zone: 1)

    Very fast growing and hardy. The tree has a nice natural shape.

  3. Kris - Dec 13, 2011
    Texas (Hardiness Zone: 8)

    Very fast growing, handled our extreme Texas sun better than the Autumn Blaze that was planted the previous year. I think it has better natural branching than the AB as well. I also love the large leaves, will be a great shade tree when mature.

  4. Kenneth - May 27, 2013
    Texas (Hardiness Zone: 7)

    I purchased 3 of these trees 3 years ago. I live in Texas where the summers can be very hot and dry. I planted them on by the street in front of my house to give me some morning shade. The first year I lost one tree and the other two didn't grow much. The second year was a very hot and dry summer. Full size trees were dieing from the heat that year. The third year these trees have exploded in growth. I love them and cannot wait to see them in fall.

  5. William - May 29, 2014
    (Hardiness Zone: )

    Tree is growing well. Darker red than the Autumn Blaze.

  6. Brian - Jan 23, 2023
    Oklahoma (Hardiness Zone: 7)

    A better tree for the south than Autumn Blaze, regarding holding fall color longer.

AUTUMN FANTASY® MAPLE Homeowner Growing & Maintenance Tips

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.
