Inaba Shidare Japanese Maple
Up your curb appeal with this stunner!
One of the quickest and easiest ways to raise the curb appeal (and the value) of your home is to add beautiful and interesting new landscaping. Inaba Shidare Japanese Maple Tree (Acer pd. 'Inaba Shidare') is definitely beautiful and interesting.
This stunner is an exceptional ornamental tree, both in color and form. This is a weeping lace leaf maple, which means it has delicate-looking leaves on gracefully cascading branches. Don’t let the airy disposition of Inaba Shidare fool you, though. This is a strong grower. It grows upright and straight, even though its branches droop appealingly.
It explodes in the spring with leaves that are such a deep scarlet they almost appear black. After that they only get more brilliant through the year. When fall finally comes, the cold weather makes the leaves a bright fiery red rivalling all other fall foliage.
The Inaba Shidare Japanese Maple growth rate is outstanding. These 3 year old trees are shipped strong and healthy. Plant them and keep them well-watered and they will grow fast – 1-2 feet a year for the first few years. The tree will double in size in 5 years! Inaba Shidare Japanese Maples can grow 10 to 15 feet tall and wide, but Inaba Shidare resonds well to pruning. Do it in autumn after the leaves have fallen and you can keep this easy-care tree to any size you like. It will even thrive in a big container. (If you want to keep it really small, you can prune it as an Inaba Shidare Japanese Maple bonsai!) Try it next to a pond for a designer look.
Give Inaba Shidare Japanese Maple full sun, plenty of water and a little afternoon shade and you’ll have striking color from spring to fall and stunning form all year round.
