Japanese Red Maple

The Japanese Red Maple tree, Acer Palmatum Autropurpeum, is by far, one of the most popular ornamental plants in the plant kingdom!


This small deciduous tree is a very showy, versatile species. Japanese Red Maple trees are used as a single specimen or in borders or groupings.


This plant can be a single-stemmed small tree or multi-stemmed shrub. The Japanese Red Maple tree is also used to create a unique bonsai tree.


The classic Japanese Red Maple has red-purple leaves which turn a brilliant red in autumn. This tree is more green than red in late summer, but remains beautiful throughout the growing season.  The Japanese Red Maple tree prospers in full sun and moist well drained soils.


* Versatile


* Showy


* Bonsai tree

<P>I have a question about my japanese red maple tree. I bought it about 4 months ago and the planted it about 2 months ago, the leaves have browned and shriveled up, what does that mean? I love my tree but I'm very concerned over it. Some leaves appear to be new growth while others are in this state. What is my problem? Please help me.

<p><strong><font size=1>Answer from Nature Hills:</strong> It would not be cost effective and in the process you may lose the tree, our recommendation would be, when you move buy another tree.

Japenses red maples Review by jb

I have three jap red maples and they are doing very well.. One of the trees is two years old and small. I would like to move the tree to another location. what advise can you give me about moving the tree.

<p><strong><font size=1>Answer from Nature Hills:</strong> Some species may survive transplanting any time during the year when the ground is not frozen, but woody plants such as the Japanese Red Maple are preferably moved in the spring after the ground thaws and before the buds on the tree or shrub begin to swell. They may also be moved in the fall after leaf drop but before the ground freezes. Fall planting should take place soon after leaf drop, providing time for new water absorbing roots to develop before the soil freezes.
When moving the tree to another location, attempt to take as much dirt with the rootball as you can. The less root trauma you cause, the better success you will have with the transplanting. </p></font><br>

Japanese Maple Cultivars Review by mrjimmy

I have 9 Japanese Maples growing on my property, 6 of which are cultivars. These trees are truly beautiful all year round. If you want a smaller tree that has not only stunning color, but unique leaf shape and tree form. They are slow growers. I highly recomend them. They really are something to see.
Needing some info Review by indoor atrium needs help

We are redoing a commercial building in our town. We wanted to install a Japanese maple in the center of the building where we have a large indoor atrium. It has 8 skylights and has its fair share of light.... do you think if it would be a good idea to plant our maple in the atrium? Help!!!!!

<p><strong><font size=1>Answer from Nature Hills:</strong> It sounds as if it would be an awesome place for the tree. Be sure there is plenty of soil, will it be in the ground or a pot? If in a pot be sure you use a very large one, the main concern would be the watering, not be to wet or to dry. </p></font><br>
