The Red Dwarf Japanese Maple is one of the smallest Japanese maple trees available, and it is ideal for container growing, as well as for small spaces in your garden. In a container it will grow to about 2 feet tall and wide, reaching perhaps 3 feet tall and wide, in time, if planted directly into the garden. It has tiny, 1-inch leaves that match its small scale perfectly, and the lobed leaves begin the year bright red, turning green with red flushes in summer, while the new growth stays red all season. In fall the leaves turn wonderful shades of bright red and rich purple.

  • Miniature form, with small leaves
  • Red new foliage in spring and summer
  • Older summer leaves are green with red tones
  • Fall colors are vibrant bright red and purple
  • Wonderful in containers or as instant ‘bonsai’ tree

The Dwarf Red Japanese Maple is hardy to zone 6, and it should be grown in full sun, or in morning sun with afternoon shade. It will grow well in moist, well-drained garden soil, or in containers, using a well-drained soil with added sand or gravel. It normally has no pests or diseases, and it needs no trimming or special care to stay small, and be a perfect miniature tree for you to enjoy.
