Maple - Japanese TamukeyamaAcer palmatum var. dissectum
USDA Hardiness Zones: 5-8
Grown since the early 1700s, Tamukeyama Japanese maple is a small, weeping, red laceleaf Japanese maple. Leaf color is reddish-purple in spring and summer, turning to crimson red in fall. The mounded, weeping tree grows 6 to 10 feet tall and 12 feet wide, making it a perfect specimen plant for small gardens. Not only will your Tamukeyama Japanese Maple look exceptional, but it's virtually fuss free. The tree can handle almost any soil as long as it's well-drained. Water regularly during the first couple of years, but avoid wet feet. An established tree can handle long dry spells and drought without any issues. Although this type of Japanese maple loves the sun, it’s best to give it dappled afternoon shade in the south. Also, protect it from cold winter winds in the north. The Tamukeyama Japanese Maple is a tree you will treasure for years to come.

How to Plant
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.
