Looking for a beautiful and easy to grow tree that adds year-round appeal? Look no further than the Acer palmatum, commonly known as the Japanese Maple or Smooth Japanese Maple. Native to Japan, North Korea, South Korea, China, eastern Mongolia, and southeast Russia, this deciduous tree boasts attractive leaf shapes and colors that make it highly sought after around the world. While it can reach heights of up to 8 meters (26 feet), it's relatively easy to cultivate and prefers a moist, well-drained soil on the acid side and partial shade. It also thrives in most soils and can grow in heavy clay soil. From May to June, it produces monoecious flowers and subsequently, fruit in the form of winged samaras. Its genetic variation means that even seedlings from the same parent tree can differ in leaf size, shape, and color. With its year-round appeal, it's no wonder that the Acer palmatum is popular for bonsai cultivation too. So what are you waiting for? Invest in this beautiful and versatile tree today!
