About Japanese Maple

One of 21 maple species native to Japan, Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum) boasts the most airy and delicate aesthetic of all. Though no species has produced as many varieties, our "common" Japanese Maples have not only an uncommon grace and beauty, they are more rugged (withstanding more sun and wind), faster growing, and more drought-resistant than other, named forms.

The leaves of Japanese Maple are 2 – 4 inches long with 5 – 9 deeply cut fine-toothed lobes, and are the source of the Japanese common name for the species, "Kaede" (meaning "frog paws"). The slow growing Japanese Maple stays fairly small (usually around 25 feet tall), and provides year-round interest. Young spring growth is glowing red; summer's leaves are soft green; fall foliage is scarlet, orange, or yellow; and slender, leafless branches in greens and reds provide winter appeal. Hardy enough to succeed in most climates, Japanese Maple prefers filtered sunlight and little wind.

(Also available to grow from seed.)

About Jonsteen's Seedlings

All of our trees are seed-grown at our nursery on California's Redwood Coast, which is inspected monthly and licensed by the California Department of Agriculture.
