The Glowing Embers Japanese Maple is a fabulous tree that brings growing Japanese maples within the reach of gardeners in the South. It is very resistant to summer heat and humidity, and doesn’t scorch or burn the way so many others do. Vigorous, it grows to 15 feet within 10 years, making an excellent small shade tree that will become over 20 feet tall and wide. Use it on a lawn, in a courtyard, behind your shrubs, in an Asian-themed garden, and even in a planter. It also grows well in colder climates.

  • Very heat-tolerant in the hottest states
  • Spectacular fall colors of oranges and reds
  • Non-scorching leaves like delicate fingers
  • Excellent small shade tree over 20 feet tall
  • Vigorous and relatively fast-growing

Your Glowing Embers Japanese Maple will grow best with some morning sun and afternoon shade. It can tolerate full sun in cooler states. The best soil is rich, moist and well-drained, and organic material added at planting time, and as mulch, will help it grow well. Water regularly, especially during the early years, and this tree is normally free of pests or diseases. Trim as needed to develop a taller trunk or a more mature look.
