The Baldsmith Japanese Maple is perhaps the most spectacular and beautiful small tree in existence. It forms a broad upright tree with branches to the ground and semi-weeping side shoots and foliage. The leaves are divided repeatedly into slender segments, resembling antique lace, and they pass through multiple color changes over the year, from orange-reds to greens and pinks to gold and bright oranges. This superb tree is suitable for a prime garden location, and it will become a real treasure and a source of joy.

  • Extraordinary semi-weeping specimen shrub or small tree
  • Finely-divided lacy foliage
  • Bright orange-red in spring
  • Green with pink margins in summer
  • brilliant orange and gold in fall

The Baldsmith Japanese Maple should be carefully located with some sun, and shade during the hottest hours of summer days. More shade may be needed in warmer areas, particularly if exposed to hot, dry winds. Plant in moist, well-drained and rich soil, and mulch regularly to keep the roots cool and damp. Pruning is rarely needed, and it should be done either in late-summer, or very late fall and winter only. Pests and diseases are normally never a problem, and this tree is not hard to grow with basic care, becoming better and better with every passing season.
