|Design Ideas||This stellar selection of native vine maple is ideally situated where dappled sunlight can stream through its graceful branching structure. Elegant entry-way accent,especially with up-lighting, so that the bright green lacy leaves can create a pattern against the architecture. Pair with an understory of large-leafed shade loving perennials or dwarf shrubs.|
|Care||Adaptable to most soil types. Water regularly and deeply during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Once established, give an occasional deep soaking during dry weather. Apply a slow-release fertilizer in spring. Mulch to protect shallow roots. Prune only as needed to remove dead wood.|
