A Four Season Tree for Year Round Elegance
Grow Your Own Piece of Picture Perfect Foliage
The Waterfall variety of the traditional Japanese Maple is a more manageable, shrub-like version of a classic. Instead of the bright red foliage its sister plants are known for, the Waterfall boasts a rounded stature and vibrant, cascading branches, sporting bright green, feather-like leaves throughout the spring.
As summer turns to fall, the tree begins to transform. That’s when magic happens. Plan to give this gorgeous shrub a place of prominence as you develop your landscape, and you will be rewarded with stunning color combinations of golden yellows, brilliant bronzes, luscious reds, and vivacious oranges. Every year, thousands of cars take off from the bustling metropolitan centers of New York and Washington DC with only a single mission in mind: find pretty leaves. When these tree-peepers make their yearly sightseeing pilgrimage north to New England, the Japanese Maples are, without doubt, one of the crown jewels to witness.
While some trees offer beautiful scenic flowering for a scant week or two, the Waterfall preserves its vivacity throughout the year, even during the winter, when its cascading beauty will help you beat the dreary winter blues, as it provides the perfect frame for a delicate, elegant snow sculpture.
No Greenthumb? No Problem.
With this shrub, there’s no need to sacrifice beauty for simplicity. This is a plant which adapts easily and won’t send you running to Google for troubleshooting advice. In northern parts of its extended growing range, it enjoys full sunlight, while in more temperate climates with hot summers, it is well suited to some afternoon shade. This variance will allow you enjoy the beauty of the Waterfall whether you live in southern Maine, suburban St. Louis or coastal Alabama.
When you plant the Waterfall, use some mulch to help keep the soil moist, and it will reward you with a natural beauty your entire neighborhood will be talking about. It isn’t a tree prone to needing pruning, and it doesn’t typically attract insects or disease. When looking for a plant that needs minimal upkeep, the Waterfall should be at the top of your list.
Build Your Own Paradise
