A New Twist on the Japanese Maple

Clinging low to the ground with a patchwork of twisting branches, the Germaine's Gyration Japanese Maple sets itself apart from all other varieties. With a maximum height of just 7 feet, its diminutive but dense shape makes it an ideal candidate for a multitude of garden and landscape purposes. Whether planted as an accent, strategically placed in containers or as a hedge, the unique form of the Germaine's will add character and charm to any location you choose. As it grows, the tree-or shrub if you prefer-forms a spreading mound that lends a softening appearance to its surroundings. Whatever your planting design calls for, this eclectic feature makes the Germaine's Gyration an incredible addition to your garden or landscape.

The Small Tree with Big Color

Aside from its distinctive form, Germaine's Gyration exhibits a soothing display of green leaves that look as though they've been dipped in burgundy along the edges. But it's during the autumn that the show of color really takes center stage. That's when the small, fern-like leaves turn a brilliant shade of orange, melding with yellows and reds to create a picturesque landscape you'll look forward to each season. It's a sight that will have you counting the days until summer finally ends.

Don't let your opportunity to get all this color fade away. Supply is limited so order your Germaine's Gyration while they're still available.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Germaine's Gyration Japanese Maple

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Germaine's Gyration 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.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Germaine's Gyration 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 Germaine's Gyration Japanese Maple again after the transplant is complete.
