The Red Japanese Maple is a great choice for a yard in need of fall color. The Red Japanese is a deciduous tree and its new growth blooms a rich burgundy before turning to green with maturity. In the fall, however, the tree's leaf color changes again, flaunting yellow to orange foliage. This maple has a slow to medium growth-rate and reaches a mature height of only 15-25 feet with a spread of 20 feet. It is hardy in Zones 5-8. USDA ZONES: Zone5, Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8

STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.

Maples prefer full sun and may need to be staked when planted. Make sure to plant in an area where there is lots of room for the tree to grow. Create a 3-4 inch layer of mulch leaving room between the mulch and the tree's trunk. Water regularly after planting. Fertilize in spring and summer, and prune in late summer or early fall.

Maple - Japanese Red

Glorious jap. Red maple

I have a jap. Red Maple since it was 3’ tall, trimmed it when it was growing around my balcony. Beautiful sight to open your eyes to in the morning. It just needs trimming to shape and encourage filling out to reach it potential.
Best purchase I ever made. I have also grown smaller trees from the little propeller seeds off the parent tree.

I was very disappointed with the structure of the plant, very leggy. Splices are very high.
