One of the most sought after specimen trees in today's landscape is the Japanese Maple. Its beautiful summer colors and ornamental structure are what give its renowned popularity throughout the world. There are many different cultivars of Japanese Maples but the most common and by far the easiest to grow is the Red Japanese Maple grown from seed. These hardy trees grow much faster than their semi-dwarf and dwarf relatives, adding a centerpiece specimen to your landscape immediately. Ideally provide ample shade for the first summer. If too much shade the plant grows slowly and the red types become more green, too little and they literally cook in the summer sun at a young age.
