Are you looking for the perfect way to Add Curb Appeal to Your Home this spring? Well, look no further. The answer is right in front of you. Well, it is in the picture to the right. Japanese Maple Trees (Acer palmatum). These beautiful trees can be the perfect accent piece for your yard.
“Japanese maples are an excellent choice for the beginning gardener, as they are essentially carefree once established,” said William B. Shell, an expert on growing Japanese maple trees. “They offer year-round interest with their ever-changing beauty.”
The Japanese Maple Tree is notorious for its ever-changing nature. Some of these trees – which range from 2-30 feet tall and come in various forms, including weeping, rounded, dwarf, mounding, upright, or cascading – leaf out in a beautiful red in spring, change to green in the summer, and transform to yellows and oranges in the fall. Others stay red from spring to fall. Either way, and no matter what form you choose, Japanese Maple Trees offer an aesthetic appeal unmatched by other trees. And with so many forms to choose from, you are sure to find a Japanese Maple Tree that will fit your needs, your landscape, and your budget.
Best of all, Japanese Maple Trees are very easy to grow and maintain when properly planted.
- Soil: Most any garden soil is suitable for these trees, as long as the soul drains well. Otherwise, you may start to notice browning on the tips of the leaves. This is a sure sign that your soil is not well drained and too soggy for the Japanese Maple. Fix the drainage issue ASAP.
- Sun: These trees grow well in sun or shade, but prefer an environment with filtered sunlight.
- Watering: Young trees should be watered consistently during the first 2 or 3 years after planting. It is also important to water these trees during prolonged periods of dry, hot weather. Water problems during the first few years is the number one killer of young Japanese Maple Trees.
