The Hime Shojo Japanese Maple is a superb newer variety, with a dense, compact form, growing into a low dome of stems to 5 feet tall. The small leaves are divided into 5 narrow fingers, and new leaves are a bright cherry red. Summer leaves are dark burgundy, and this variety holds that color well throughout summer. It is perfect for smaller gardens, on walls and in rock gardens, and of course for growing in a pot or developing into a wonderful bonsai tree.

  • Beautiful dwarf form growing to around 5 feet tall
  • Compact, with especially small and delicate leaves
  • Bright red new growth
  • Reliable burgundy foliage throughout the summer
  • Ideal for pots and bonsai

Full sun or some afternoon shade is best for the Hime Shojo Japanese Maple, which grows best in moist, rich, well-drained soil. It is not very drought-resistant, so water regularly during the summer in particular, and feed container plants with liquid fertilizer in spring and early summer. Normally free of pests or diseases, in a suitable location, with some attention to watering, this tree is not difficult to grow.
