Whether you want to expand your collection of Japanese Maples; or only have room for a single tree...this is a choice to feel proud of. Delight in the lyrical, horizontal branching and delicate foliage.

Burgundy Lace Japanese Maple tells a garden story wherever you use it. Grow them in the ground, or keep them in oversized outdoor containers on your balcony or deck.

Commemorate a loved one, or celebrate one of life's big milestones. Or, gift yourself simply because you fell in love with their fantastic looks.

In spring, seven-lobed leaves unfurl a burgundy-purple. The sophisticated color delivers an impeccable contrast to their ethereal shape.

Burgundy Lace is a small tree to study for hours through summertime. As the heat comes on, you'll see the newest leaves develop a bronze overcast for additional interest.

But it is perhaps the fall color that makes the most visual impact. Once lights grow cooler, the foliage warms up to a vivid scarlet-red.

This color splash more than rivals other fall color plants. Consider making this tree the star of your autumn display.

Include the enchanting Burgundy Lace Japanese Maple in your personal space this season. Order today!

How to Use Burgundy Lace Japanese Maple in the Landscape

Use a single tree as an ornamental backdrop for an outdoor seating area. Consider it a wall of a garden room, and you'll find a perfect spot for it.

Don't forget that this tree has been sculpted by Bonsai enthusiasts. Remember that you can strategically prune the canopy higher for a fanciful specimen.

Perhaps you would prefer to allow branches to fill in further down the trunk. With a bushier plant, you'll gain a lush privacy screen all season long.

Make them work to decorate the unique contours of your allotted space. Decorate the side of your front door with one pruned for a custom-fit.

Add several to create a traffic-stopping accent on a berm planting for a beautifully Japanese-style flair. Partner with boulders and create your own "mountains" in the front yard.

Let their evocative reflection spotlight a water feature, as well. Plant an informal grouping at water's edge to amplify your landscape investment with such ease.

You can also choose to grow them in containers for your patio. Provide a sheltered spot for best results.

Our tree experts take such care of these charming small trees. That's why we work with professional garden designers across the country.

Feel confident that your selection can be used front and center in your landscape design. Anchor your patio planting, or use at the corner of your home with pride.

#ProPlantTips for Care

Japanese Maples do best with morning sun and protection from hot afternoon sun. This is especially true in the warmer climates.

Mulch over the root system to keep them cool and moist. However, you need to pull the mulch away from directly touching the trunk.

Burgundy Lace loves consistent supplemental water on a regular basis. Aim to keep the soil evenly moist, but ensure there is good drainage.

It can't live in standing water, so there is a fine line to maintain. Elevate the tree in a raised bed, if you have soggy soil that has puddles that remain for long periods of time.

Prune to shape in winter while your tree is dormant. Please plan your pruning cuts carefully and take your time.

Enjoy this gorgeous tree. Order Burgundy Lace Japanese Maple today!
