In Japan people have annual outings to view the spectacular colors of their Japanese Maple forests. Why not add a few to make a mini Japanese Maple forest for yourself? You will be rewarded all year long. Rule of thumb culture: Protection from hottest sun and winds, keep soil moist, well drained, slightly acid. Listed below are a few of our favorites. Some of the listings are from seed and will vary slightly in color, leaf shape and size, and are easier for us to reproduce, thus we can offer them at a bargain price. The grafted selections are from the cream of the crop, true to color, size, and leaf shape. They take a great deal of time and effort to reproduce, thus are by comparison to the seedlings, quite costly. But they will reward you, dazzle you, and sometimes take your breath away with their beauty. Zones: 5-9. Note: Shipping cost per tree may be less when combined with other plants.
