Homeowner Growing & Maintenance

Acer is easy to grow, and adapts to most 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

A very nice smaller to medium size tree. Good for planting in areas with limited space.

Very happy with the tree I ordered. It was packaged very well. The tree was a good size and looks healthy. Would absolutely order from Sooner Plants again.
