The Story

Japanese Maples have been cultivated by the Japanese, Chinese, and Koreans for several hundredyears, and by the rest of the world for over two hundred. That’s a lot of eyes watching for new forms, and as a result, they now come in an astounding variety of colors, sizes, and shapes. Two traits highly valued in any tree—red foliage and a weeping habit—meet in this special tree that was sure to be a winner from the day it debuted at the Connecticut nursery of Peter Cascio, in 1965.

The Details

Majestic cascading branches are covered with delicate, burgundy red, thread-like leaves all season long. The exceptional branching makes it an excellent focal point in the winter months as well. This “queeny” will provide loads of personality in any landscape. Simply Awesome!

How to Grow

Japanese Maples like to be planted in full sun, but would appreciate some light afternoon shade as well. Full blazing sun along with poor soil conditions can cause leaf scorch. They also would appreciate being planted in areas that get protection from wind; they do not tolerate windswept locations. Japanese Maples must be planted in soils that are well-drained; they will not tolerate wet, poor quality soils. Once you have found the perfect location to plant your Japanese Maple, keep it watered throughout dry spells until it has become established in your garden. For the first 3 or 4 years you can apply a medium rate fertilizer. You only need to apply once a year in the fall; this gives your tree the nutrients it needs to produce lush new growth for the following spring. Japanese Maples, when maintained properly, do not have any major pest or disease problems. However, they do run the risk of getting Verticillium, which is a root fungus. This occurs when the Japanese Maple is planted in soil that is not well-drained. Proper planting location will also help the burgundy-leafed Japanese Maples keep their deep, rich color. If the tree becomes stressed because of poor soil quality, or too wet/dry soil, the color of the foliage will be altered. So, what’s important? Location, location, location!
