This variety of Japanese Maple features a very unique, lacy foliage. The foliage has deeply cut, dissected leaves that spread out nicely. Foliage remains red even during Spring and Summer months. During the fall, the leaves begin to darken to purple. Japanese Maple bonsai trees, or Acer Palmatum, are highly prized as bonsai due to their unique leaves. Their growth patterns also make them very easy to train. The Japanese Maple bonsai tree is aged 5-7 years old and arrives in a 8" ceramic bonsai pot. Pot may vary depending on availability. Tree measures 14" - 16" tall, including the pot.
Japanese maple trees are easy to take care of. However, due to their deciduous nature, we recommend them for intermediate and advanced enthusiasts.
During the warmer months, leaf scorch may occur for this species of maple if exposed to heat, winds, and salt. Trees may arrive with some leaf burn which is a normal process of growth and leaf rotation.
