Acer palmatum (Japanese Maple)

Scott grows and grafts many varieties of this Asian native that range from shrubs to small trees. Japanese maples are easy to care for and require little-to-no pruning, but some cultivars can be impacted by scorching sun and wind. All ornamental cultivars grow best in moist, well-draining soil and full-to-part sun. They are hardy in zones 5-9.
