The Bonfire Japanese Maple grows into an upright small tree, reaching 5 feet tall in ten years. Its slender form makes it ideal for smaller spaces, and for containers and pots. The spring growth is incredibly vibrant, with tones of orange, pink, coral and bright red making a fiery blaze in your garden. The summer leaves are a rich green, sometimes with bluish overtones, and in fall it turns dramatic shades or pure orange, bright red and crimson. The leaves are divided into 5 or 7 tapering, elegant fingers.

  • The brightest spring leaves of any maple
  • Dramatic orange-pink to coral new growth
  • Powerful fall colors are orange-red to crimson
  • Excellent smaller tree for small gardens
  • Perfect for containers and pots

The Bonfire Japanese Maple is perfectly hardy in zone 6, and it grows best in rich, moist, well-drained soils. For containers the soil should be porous and blended for trees, or you can add 20% coarse sand or fine gravel to regular potting soil. The slender twigs of this tree make it a good choice for bonsai training, or let it grow naturally in the garden or in a pot. It normally has no pests or diseases, so once you have a good location and suitable soil, the rest is easy.
