Japanese Maple Trees: A Field Guide

Lacy and elegant, slow-growing Japanese maple trees are diminutive members of the Acer family, ranging in size from 4-foot shrubs to 25-foot trees.

When Japanese maple begins to flame in autumn, it is unmissable. Branches are as beautifully shaped as the leaves, providing winter interest in a landscape. Smaller varieties of Japanese maple are an excellent choice for a raised bed or large pot (the roots may need to be protected by wrapping the pot in winter).
