Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
ACER palmatum 'Osakazuki'
Japanese Maple, Osakasuki Japanese Maple
Japanese maple is a small deciduous tree native to eastern Asia. Its cultivar 'Osakazuki' features large, deeply 7-lobed, palmate (hand-shaped) leaves, which emerge pale green in spring, become deep green in summer, and turn a spectacular glowing crimson in fall. It grows relatively rapidly into a stout small tree. In winter, gray branches will add to any garden or landscape.
Plant Japanese maple in rich, acidic, well-drained soil and sun to part shade. This cultivar tolerates sun, heat and drought better than many others, making it especially versatile. Use it as a feature plant, in a mixed border, or in a container (where it makes an ideal bonsai plant).
