Adrian’s Compact Japanese Maple is a charming and beautiful small tree, growing to just 5 feet tall and 3 feet wide after 10 years. Its lobed leaves are perfectly in scale with its small size, and they pass through a succession of beautiful colors as the seasons pass. The new leaves are bright red, turning rich burgundy for the summer. In fall the tree celebrates with bright scarlet and flaming orange colors, before exposing the delicate tracery of its branches for the winter. Its small size makes it ideal for containers and planters, for growing in the foreground of beds, or to plant in small courtyards and Asian-styled gardens.

  • Bright red new leaves
  • Rich burgundy foliage all summer long
  • Wonderful fall tones of brilliant scarlet and vibrant orange
  • Perfect dwarf tree for container growing
  • Ideal choice for small gardens

Grow Adrian’s Compact Japanese Maple in full sun in cooler zones, if regularly well-watered, or otherwise with some afternoon shade to protect from scorching. Some sun is needed to keep the leaves completely red all summer. Rich, moist well-drained soil is best, and add coarse sand or fine gravel to potting soils for container growing, to enhance the drainage. Pests and diseases are normally never a problem, and this tree is easy to grow in suitable light conditions and with regular watering.
