This is the first time we’ve offered these and we are excited about our large propagation operation. We have many import Japanese Maples, called ‘Momiji’ in Japan. These are just standard Japanese Maples but they do exhibit small leaves and good growth characteristics from their parent stock. Small leaves equal tight internodes.
During routine pruning of our specimen trees we started taking cuttings off of them a few years ago. These are 2-3 years old from cutting and well established in their 2 1/4” inch pots.
Also, taking trees from cutting is a longer initial process but we did that work for you. There is a much better chance for a nice nebari than growing from seed.
Pictured here in fall color, they have deep green color leaves in the summer.
Common Name: Japanese Maple
Latin Name: Acer Palmatum
Native to: Japan.
Climate: Zones 5-9 and can go colder given winter protection.
Care: Treat them like any maple. They grow very quickly in the ground. Free draining soil and plenty of water seems to work well. They respond well to being fertilized as well.
Size: 4-8 inches tall.
Notes: This is a deciduous tree and therefore will not have foliage during the winter.
