Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
ACER palmatum 'Aoyagi'
A small multi-stemmed deciduous tree native to eastern Asia, the beautiful and ubiquitous Japanese maple is a garden staple. The showy bright green bark of the cultivar 'Aoyagi' makes it a year-round standout in the garden. This small tree bears pale green palmate leaves with five to seven long pointed lobes. Spring and fall leaf color is golden-green. Inconspicuous purplish flowers in spring give rise to green, red-tinged, winged fruits. In winter, the green branches and elegant spreading habit of a mature specimen will add to any garden or landscape.
Japanese maples prefer sites with rich, well-drained soil and part sun to part shade. They fare poorly in hot, dry, or windy locations. Some self-sowing may occur. This lovely small tree is versatile in the landscape and may be grown as a feature or bonsai plant or in a mixed border.
