Brighten Your Yard with Changing Red Foliage

A show-stopping display of reds is synonymous with the Red Japanese Maple. Beautiful, bright red foliage appears in spring and transforms into burgundy in summer and then scarlet in autumn, so you'll have year-round visual interest.

The winter bark has tones of red and black to add warmth in the coldest months. Plus, your Red Japanese Maple can be easily pruned to any height you desire, making it ideal for small yards.

Even better? The roots aren't disruptive, so planting it near borders, driveways, and sidewalks can add a pop of color without damage.

You'll love everything the Red Japanese Maple will bring to your landscape:

  • Increase the value of your yard - this stunning tree will add value anywhere you plant it.
  • Create interesting contrast ­­- nothing looks better against a sea of green than a consistent show of reds.
  • Impress your neighbors - with a tree prized by landscape designers.

And best of all, this ornamental value comes with no maintenance. Adaptable, tolerant and hardy, your Red Japanese Maple will give you a show without all the work.

This popular tree doesn't stay in stock long. Don't miss your chance to add this standout tree to your landscape. Order yours today!

Suspected dead on arrival but great customer service

This is not a negative review towards FGT, just specifically this tree. I bought in January and when it arrived it was basically a twig. That’s to be expected since these go dormant in the winter. I potted up and kept it under the same conditions as my other Japanese maple saplings of the same size. Come April, my ones I bought locally were leafing out. The one from FGT was still dormant. I did the bark scratch test and it was basically dead. I’m suspecting the tree was dead when I got it or near dead. Here is the good part. I reached out and explained my problem. They quickly got back to me stating they also suspected it was dead. They offered to send me a replacement or store credit. Excellent customer service! 5 stars to the company, but this tree gets 1 star.
