Here’s why you need a Fireglow:

  • Amazing fire-red color

Fireglow Adds Warmth to any Location
If you’re looking for bright color in a tight spot, the Fireglow Japanese Maple Tree is exactly what you need.  More compact than other varieties, the Fireglow tops out at 10 feet in height, so it makes an excellent specimen whether planted in the garden or your favorite decorative pot.  And don’t let hot, sunny conditions prevent you from planting a Japanese Maple. The Fireglow is tough enough to withstand scorching heat and still maintain its incredible color.  Vigorous, reliable and full of color, make your next Japanese Maple a Fireglow.
Blazing Color from an Amazing Tree

Aside from its strength and convenient size, the single best feature about the Fireglow is the rich, brilliant color that gives the tree its name.  So vivid are the red leaves, they almost appear ablaze.  The sun’s light is able to penetrate the Fireglow’s canopy, which is less dense than most Japanese Maples.  This creates deep, intense color that lasts throughout the season.  Then, in the fall, the leaves morph to a purple, red and green mixture that gives the tree a whole new appearance.  

Offering the perfect shape and color combination, the Fireglow Japanese Maple will brighten your garden or landscape like no other.  Order yours today.

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Fireglow Japanese Maple.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Fireglow Japanese Maple gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Fireglow Japanese Maple again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

Will my Trees Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Most Trees are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
