Japanese Maples
Acer Palmatum

Japanese maples lend themselves beautifully to container growing. Dwarf types in ornamental pot & urns are well suited to patios and small gardens.
Where larger containers can be utilized, the choice of form, color, leaf texture and branching offer greater variety.
Full size trees grow well in tubs and permanent containers. Care is minimal, although it has to be constant since plants in containers will dry out more quickly than the same plant in the ground.
The Japanese Maple is an excellent specimen for the Art & Craft of Bonsai. The occasional root & top pruning with proper attention to water and fertilizer create this art form.
