Customer Reviews & Photos
Packaging was great and I planted right away! But not real happy wanted more of a tree look.
I'm waiting to see what my little tree will do! Was alittle disappointed thought it would be more like a tree maybe 4 inches on bottom to plant the tree looks like a bush. Has no trunk where you could cut limbs to make it lol like a tree with a trunk of i did that the tree would be totally bare.
A bush not a tree.
It arrived OK and in good condition. But it had 4-5 main stalks like a bush. I Iopped all but one of the stalks and planted it in the lawn per the directions provided. It remains to be seen if it will survive the amputations. I suggest that the company commence trimming some of the maples as trees and ship those to people who want trees not bushes.
I was very pleased with the condition of the plant. Leaves on it and nice root system ! I would buy my next tree/shrub from you guys!
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Your Amur Flame Maple will grow in any spot in your yard that gets full sun or partial shade, but more sun will produce brighter colors in the fall. This tree is also adaptable to all pH levels and most soil types except finely textured soils like clay. Amur Flame Maples do not like excessive water, so be sure to plant in a spot that is very well-draining. Plant in a hole twice as wide but just as deep as the root ball, place your tree and back fill the soil. Finally, water to settle the roots.
2. Watering: Water deeply after planting to establish the roots. You won't need to water your tree again after this. If you experience severe drought in the first year, you can water weekly to help it establish, but even this is unnecessary.
3. Pruning: There is not additional maintenance needed for your Amur Flame Maple, but you can prune it down to any size you like, and you can also prune away stems to create a single-stemmed tree.
