Place a loose grouping in a curving, mulched garden bed for a naturalized look. Or...create a dynamic interplay with a stick-straight modern-looking row, planting eight to ten feet apart from trunk to trunk.

Be sure to punch up the drama with innovative garden artwork and exterior up lighting positioned into the canopy. Make your investment work at night, as well!

This tree draws eyes, and can easily attract attention in an outdoor courtyard at an urban restaurant. Use several to increase the impact.

#ProPlantTips for Care

Give slow-growing Kagiri Nishiki Japanese Maple a planting site with morning sun and afternoon shade. For the best color, give them at least four hours of sunlight a day.

They'll do best in rich, well-drained soil. Add Nature Hills Root Booster to support the tiny feeder roots in their quest for moisture and micronutrients. The beneficial effects last forever!

Apply a regular amount of water on a regular basis. Even water is best for solid performance.

Japanese Maples really love a layer of pine straw or pine bark mulch over the root system, Please pull it well back at least six inches to avoid touching the trunk directly.

WInter is the time to prune your trees. Study the structure and plan your cuts ahead of time. Cut at a 45-degree angle above an outward facing bud.
