Tiny lot? Plant just one as a specimen to grace the corner of your home or soften the edge of your patio.

Add several of these unique Laceleaf Maples to a dramatic elevated berm in the front yard. Create a loose triangle for an exceptionally natural grouping.

Take this idea and use it along your pond or water feature. Let the water's reflection boost their tender visual effect a thousand-fold.

In a courtyard, add a symmetrical pair nestled around the outside edges of a comfy outdoor couch. You'll feel like a Fairy Princess or Prince in your special bower.

Even apartment dwellers can use them on balconies or rooftops as a gorgeous screening plant. Plant them in a 24-inch diameter pot and keep them watered well.

Try a series of three, five or seven along a sophisticated terrace or palazzo. Create a memorable contrast with clean, streamlined modern containers to showcase the heart-catching, downturned branches.

They make a very special gift plant. Thrill a bonsai enthusiast, or send as a fitting memorial tribute. Offer to plant and care for them during the first season of grief, if you can.

Nature Hills offers so many varieties of Japanese Maple. Why not start a curated, personal collection?

In a Meditation Garden, place Green Laceleaf near a large boulder to hold space for the study of contrasts. Unwind with help from their flowing form.

#ProPlantTips for Care

Grow in full sun or partial shade. In hot summers, they'll love a site in morning sun and afternoon shade. Keep them evenly moist, but ensure the soil is well-drained.

If your native soil is slightly acidic, you won't need to do much. Simply add a few handfuls of compost and Nature Hills Root Booster to support your new tree over its whole life.

In extremely alkaline soils, grow them in a container and apply a layer of pine straw mulch to cover the roots. Always pull mulch back away from the trunk.

Prune during winter dormancy to shape your Green Laceleaf Japanese Maple. Enjoy the creative process, and take your time to sculpt a living work of art.

As you might imagine, these rare trees are in very high demand. Start your collection, or add this beauty to an existing one.
