Deep Valley Tree Farm
Acer palmatum (Japanese Maple)
Japanese Maples are distinctive trees, as are all maples. They are not native to North America, but were introduced from Japan and China. They grow as trees or bush-like to a height of about 25 feet, with a 20 foot spread. They grow slowly in climate zones 6 - 9, and are deciduous. The leaves are 2 - 4 inches in length, with 5 - 9 narrow, pointed lobes. They are simple and palmately lobed. The trees have purple flowers, and winged seeds, called Samara, which are a distinguishing feature of all maples.
Deep Valley Tree Farm's trees are solid in color, mostly yellow/green, although some of the cultivars are maroon/red. They grow well in full sun, but do not tolerate drying weather.
