The Dwarf Coral-bark Japanese Maple is a dwarf version of the familiar Coral-bark maple tree. It has the same striking coral-red winter twigs, but on a bushy plant hardly more than 6 feet tall. Its dense growth makes it ideal for shrub borders, smaller gardens, woodlands or container growing, and its glowing lemon-yellow leaves in fall are a wonderful sight. This tree is a great choice for warmer zones, and the foliage stands up well to heat and slightly drier conditions than most other Japanese maples. It would even make a beautiful natural hedge along a path or driveway.

  • Wonderful coral-red winter twigs
  • Glorious fall leaves of glowing lemon yellow
  • Divided leaves like an outstretched hand
  • Dense, bushy tree to 6 feet tall
  • Great choice for planters and pots

Grow the Dwarf Coral-bark Japanese Maple in full sun, or morning sun with afternoon shade. Good sunlight will develop the best twig color. It thrives in moist, well-drained and rich soil, with limited resistance to dry conditions. Water regularly until it is well established and growing vigorously. It normally has no pests or diseases, and it requires no trimming to keep its compact, rounded, bushy form.
