Month-to-Month Visual Interest

Why Red Select Japanese Maple Trees?

From its gorgeous dark purple spring foliage to its dazzling fall colors, the Red Select Japanese Maple Tree boasts month-to-month visual interest you'll love.

Color abounds in this low-sweeping, stunner and gets brighter throughout the season. The convenient size, slow growth rate and near-perfect shape of this small landscape tree make the Red Select a popular specimen for a variety of areas. And because it's tolerant of urban pollution, Red Select is an excellent choice whether it's planted in a city, suburban or country setting.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Start by selecting an area with well-drained soil and the proper sunlight for your Red Select. In warmer climates, you will want to plant your tree in an area that receives some shade from the hot afternoon sun. From there, dig the hole slightly larger than the root system of the plant - 2 to 3 times the width and just as deep as the root ball.

Then, place the tree, backfill the hole and tamp down the soil as you proceed to cut back on any air pockets from forming. Water the planting site and then mulch to preserve soil moisture.

2. Watering: The “average” amount of water supplied to the most common lawn and garden plants should be adequate for your new Japanese Maple Tree. During the hot summer months, we recommend watering your Japanese Maple in the early morning or evening.

3. Fertilizing: Japanese Maples do not require large amounts of nutrients. But any recommended fertilization should use a balanced complete fertilizer for shrubs and trees. This should be applied once a year in early spring, and if possible, before the leaves appear.

4. Pruning: Your tree will need 2 to 3 years to become firmly established in your lawn or garden before you prune. After this period, you may begin to prune your tree if desired, although it's not required.

Beautiful young tree

Very nice. It has brown on the edges of all the leaves. However there are signs of new growth. I have great expectations for the two Scarlet Japanese maple trees I purchased.

easy peasy shopping

This was so much easier than trekking from nursery to nursery in hopes of finding a nice tree. The tree was a little smaller than I envisioned, but it seems very happy in its new home (the front yard) and I hope to see it grow quickly.
