A Delight in All Seasons!
The Spring Delight Japanese Red Maple is perhaps the most unique of all Japanese maples. Its graceful weeping look will transform even the barest of landscapes.
Here are more reasons to have this prized tree…
● Foliage interest in spring and fall
● Low maintenance
● Container friendly
● Works in numerous landscape designs
Once winter releases its cold grip, the Spring Delight jumps to life. Palm-shaped light green leaves are accented with red tips. But the show is far from over. When fall beckons, the Spring Delight’s leaves turn brilliant oranges and yellows. No wonder this deciduous tree is hard to come by!
Easy on the Eye, Easier on the Upkeep
Care for your Spring Delight Japanese Red Maple is simple. Its biggest requirements are soil, sun, and wind protection. This type of tree loves a well-drained moist soil with a neutral ph if possible. If you live in the south, consider planting where the tree has afternoon shade in the heat of the summer. Plus, plant where there is some protection like a hedge wall, since the Spring Delight is susceptible to strong winds.
Besides that, the maintenance is worry free. Pruning is simple. Pests and disease steer clear. Fertilize with an organic 10-10-10 in the spring. Keep a newly planted Spring Delight well-watered until established. Once your tree matures, it can handle drought and dry spells without a whimper. And in ideal conditions, the Spring Delight can live up to 60 years!
A Garden Design Delight
The Spring Delight’s compact shape (8ft high and wide at maturity) makes it a winning choice in any landscape. Plant as a dramatic backdrop to a perennial flower garden. Do a mass planting to create the ultimate privacy hedge. You can even plant in a container to give your patio that exotic flavor. Residents north of Growing Zone 5 can plant the Spring Delight in a pot and move it inside for the winter. The other houseplants will pale in comparison!
