Japanese Maples

Japanese maple trees will astonish you with their presence and with more than one hundred varieties to choose from. Japanese maples are easily available in different trunk forms, ranging from single to multiple. The former are the best match for formal office building ambiance or Hotel and Resort surroundings. The later balance their looks to an informal setting.

Single trunked are known for their sober and mature looks for which you will find them in most office buildings while multi trunked are best suited for the home and casual environment. Undersized maples can become handy in the places where you are running out of space. If you want to purchase them, then you must consider factors like, the available space, and the nature of the site where you intend to place them including the desired color scheme when their colors change with the season.

These trees have height from 3 to 30 feet, which is enough range to accommodate them in many different places. The overall structures show mesmerizing harmony as the branches flow outward and remarkably bring to mind a semblance of clouds.

Japanese maples are a favorite among gardeners who practice the ancient art of Bonsai (pronounced: bones-eye) growing because of their natural adaptability to climate and environment.

Japanese maples otherwise known as Acer Palmatum are the local breed of China, Korea and obviously of Japan, from where these charming maples get part of their name because the leaves resemble the shape of the human palm and fingers.

Japanese maples proudly lie in the category of plants known for their seasons. How do we know the winter? By its chilling snow, by its icy landscapes, well winter is just not about the white color, it is about orange, red and yellow as well the elegant green flora exhibits the mentioned color changes in full vivid outburst.

On a chilling autumn evening a visit to a garden having these beautiful plants will amaze you at the fact that its sophisticated flowing leaves bear a resemblance to whirling flames.

Lush soil of acid or neutral nature is the most favored place where they like to bloom. Don’t worry if you have alkaline soil in your area; growing them in large pots will let you enjoy the enriched experience. As these plants have shallow root system, for this reason moisture gets top priority in their daily watering needs. This might sound like the plant cannot endure the dry soil which is not exactly the case. It can grow in un-favored conditions, but the downside is that it may not provide the same color changes for which it is known.

You should avoid planting these delicate trees in areas where they have to face the sun. It cannot stand the direct hot sunshine, and in many cases turns the foliage into green. If the sun is unavoidable in your area a shady spot can solve this problem and you can save this exotic and exciting species from burning. There are levels of burning, initially the color of leaves start to fade, this is the first indication that something is wrong with the plant. If this is ignored, the plant will get severely damaged over time.

As with every planting project, you should establish whether your location will satisfy the growing requirements of the desired plant. Climate and weather conditions may be a determining growth factor in your choice of plants.
