How to Use Beni Schichihenge Japanese Maple in the Landscape

In a tiny courtyard, add a single tree as an attractive specimen plant. You can carefully sculpt your tree to create a custom-fit with thoughtful pruning.

However, we do recommend that you allow enough room for the mature height and spread of these pretty trees. Spend time with your unique tree when you receive it, turning it this way and that before planting.

Did you know you can plant intentionally trees at a tilt? Why not create an arched "alle" over your front doorway, removing a limb or two as needed to raise the canopy for access.

Beni Schichihenge Japanese Maple inspires people. Enjoy the never-ending creative process of gardening!

Plant one or more in a Japanese-inspired garden. They look wonderful on a planned berm planting.

Try these small-scale ornamental trees as a focal point in a Meditation Garden, or plant several to become living wallpaper in an outdoor dining room.

Keep the lower limbs on them to create a slightly shrubby look. They can be enjoyed as a larger-scale screen if you have the room.

Incorporate them into mulched planting beds to anchor your foundation or patio plantings. They make a spectacular informal grouping on a berm planting; and are unsurpassed near a pond or water feature.

Grow them in extra-large containers with plenty of drainage holes on your balcony. Give container trees a sheltered spot located out of the brunt of strong, gusty winds.

#ProPlantTips for Care

In the warmest climates, give slow-growing Beni Schichihenge Japanese Maple a spot in afternoon shade. They require at least four hours of sunlight a day.

Plant in rich, well-drained soil. We highly recommend you include the time-tested Nature Hills Root Booster to set your gorgeous tree up for success. It supports the tiniest roots as they access moisture and micronutrients, and never "wears out.".

Please pay close attention to watering. Give a consistent schedule of supplemental water.

Apply pine straw or pine bark mulch over the root system to keep the soil evenly moist and cool. Always pull the mulch back at least six inches from around the trunk for proper air circulation.

Make strategic pruning cuts in late winter or early spring. Do yourself a favor, and plan these out in advance. Decide what to keep first, then remove only what you need to.

You know these wildly popular trees won't last long. If you see them in stock on the site, please order Beni Schichihenge Japanese Maple right away.
