(30 seeds)

One of the most popular ornamental plants in the world. The deep shades of red leaves in autumn rival almost any flower.

More robust than its red leaf cousin, the Japanese Maple makes a great bonsai subject. The species responds well to autumn pruning and is suitable for most bonsai styles. A thirsty plant at times, it is best kept in part shade during the warmer months of the year.

A native to Japan and China, the Japanese maple remains one of the most popular ornamental trees for Australian gardners and it makes a great pot plant able to live happily in a large pot for years on end. It has an upright and spreading growth habit to less than 6m, and it’s leaves turn from a deep green in spring and summer to a deep beautiful red in autumn.

Propagation

The species will do best in a well drained acidic soil with plenty of added organic matter. It is mildly frost tolerant and can be grown in most cool and temperate areas of Australia. It has a tendency for leaf burn in very hot and windy weather and therefore will do best in part shade during the summer months
