Product Description

Red is a statement in the landscape. It draws attention, livens up the scene, changes the mood. And with a Red Japanese Maple, you can lift red up out of your garden beds and put it centerstage, giving maximum impact in your landscape. This treasured ornamental stays small, so you can accent the front yard without obscuring the front of your house, plant it in a garden bed to play with color contrasts or put it right in the center of a courtyard and still have room to walk around. The leaves are lobed, and so finely cut they look lacey. What you do with this maple is up to you and the pruning shears. You can grow it as a standard tree or develop multiple trunks, depending on your preferred silhouette. It grows slowly and manageably, so you can prune it in early spring to keep it tidy or for bonsai styling. For something so coveted as a specimen tree, it's handy that Red Japanese Maple is so tractable too. Wherever you plant it, though, be sure it has shelter from wind to protect the delicate unfolding leaves from drying. Acer palmatum var. atropurpureum
