Bonsai Comments:

Japanese Maple produces magnificent fall color and is very hardy and flexible branches making it an ideal specimen for bonsai. Acer palmatum preers a sunny, airy spot except for in the midday heat where it needs shade. It is frost hardy to about 14 F , and recommended to be in a sheltered area for the first few years. Bonsai don't like to dry out, keep most for best results.
