|Design Ideas||Japanese maples are a must in any Asian-themed garden or small urban landscape. This delicate, shade loving tree can be planted in a natural grove of much larger trees to take advantage of the shelter the high canopy has to offer. Their preference for acidic soils also make them perfectly adapted to grow alongside needled evergreens, Hydrangeas, Camellias, Azaleas and Holly. Add this tree to containers or foundation plantings close to your outdoor living space where they provide texture and dappled shade without crowding windows, patios, or decks.|
|Foliage Color||Light Green|
|Companion Plants||Lily of the Valley Shrub (Pieris); Peony (Paeonia); Hosta (Hosta); Japanese Forest Grass (Hakonechloa); Astilbe (Astilbe); Rhododendron (Rhododendron)|
|Care||Provide slightly acidic, well-drained soil; shelter from drying winds. Avoid harsh afternoon sun exposures in hot summer areas. Mulch to keep root zone cool. Water deeply, regularly during first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Apply slow-release fertilizer in early spring.|
