(50 seeds)

$4.35

Wonderful form and beautiful deep red leaves. A must for any bonsai enthusiast.

The Red Leaf Japanese Maple is one of the worlds most popular bonsai tree varieties. Grown for it's beautiful shape and colour, the leaves on this plant go from a deep red in the spring, through to green in summer and then on to a golden brown colour in the autumn. Whilst this tree is quite frost tolerant, it does need to be protected from cold winds in the winter and in summer it needs to be well watered and kept largely out of the hot sun and away from hot winds as these will tend to burn the leaves.
