A Cascading Beauty!
The Red Select Japanese Maple is a stunner in any garden design. Its array of leaf colors attracts the eye (and jealous neighbors) in all growing seasons.
Here’s more reasons why you should add this beauty to your landscape…
● Cold hardy
● Different leaf colors from spring through fall
● Low maintenance
● Container friendly
The Red Select Japanese Maple is a showoff, bursting with foliage color that not even the most jaded gardener can resist. The lace-like leaves emerge deep purple in the spring with clusters of small reddish flowers. It then turns to shades of deep bronze and greens that lasts up until winter. But the foliage isn’t the only centerpiece. The trunk’s silvery bark and red branches create a dramatic look that outdoes all other garden centerpieces.
Despite its royal looks, the Red Select Japanese Maple is pamper free. Pests and disease are not an issue. Pruning is rarely needed, and only done in late winter to get rid of dead branches. Fertilize with a balanced organic 10-10-10 once in the spring.
Your tree can handle almost any soil as long as it's well-drained and slightly acidic. Water new trees regularly for the first several years. Established Japanese maples can handle dry spells and drought without a droop. Southern residents should find afternoon or dappled shade for the tree when summer arrives. Plus, the Red Select Japanese Maple needs protection from strong winds.
Star of the Show
The Red Select Japanese Maple will turn your mild-mannered garden into the pride of the neighborhood. Its compact shape (10 ft high and 15 ft wide at maturity) can accent any space you desire. The cascading look serves as a perfect ground cover, or can be showcased next to a water garden. Urban dwellers never fear: the Red Select is highly tolerant of urban pollution. And if you live north of Growing Zone 5, you can still enjoy the beauty of this tree in a container. Move it inside in the winter, and enjoy the colorful foliage year round!
