Plant Care Tips
Planting InstructionsIf soil in container is dry, water plants prior to planting. Dig a hole at least twice the diameter of the root ball and 1.5 times deeper. Mix fertilizer or compost into the soil and return a few inches of soil mixture to the planting hole. Remove the plant from the container and gently tease out the roots on the surface of the root ball. Plant with the top of the root ball at ground level. Back-fill around the root ball with the rest of the soil mixture, gently firming it in as you go, and build a short berm of soil around the plant to create a watering basin. Water the plant thoroughly to settle the soil around the roots. Keep new plants well-watered the first summer, checking for water needs daily or every other day. Covering the root ball and area around the plant with 1-3 inches of mulch will help keep roots cool and conserve moisture. Keep mulch from touching tree trunks and plant stems.
General Care DescriptionTo thrive, Japanese maples need plenty of water and mild temperatures. Full sun and hot weather may scorch new foliage growth and prevent this tree from looking its best, come autumn.
Effort of Care
Full sun in cool summer climates will produce the best foliage color. Provide afternoon shade in hot climates to prevent foliage burn.
Water regularly and deeply on a weekly basis in extreme heat, more in containers.
