The Story

For centuries, the Japanese have appreciated the beauty of their native Japanese Maples.  By 1820, the year that Japanese Maples were first grown in the Western World, the Japanese had already selected dozens of different varieties.  Swedish physician Carl Peter Thunberg is credited with delivering the first of these marvelous trees to Europe.  It wasn’t easy—Japan was closed at the time to outsiders, except for Dutch traders, and Thunberg had to pass himself off as a Dutchman.  This threadleaf selection is a very old variety—the discoverer’s name is long forgotten.

The Details

Simply Breathtaking! These graceful, bright green, thread-like leaves cover the cascading branches all summer. Fall's cool nights and shorter days provide a spectacular appearance as the leaves turn fiery shades of yellow, gold, and orange. A specimen tree that can easily fit into your landscape design.

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!
