The Oregon Sunset Japanese Maple is a newer variety of these ever-popular trees, with a broad, sturdy form. It grows steadily into a bush 4-foot tall after 10 years, and as wide or a little wider. The leaves are divided into narrow ‘fingers’, and carried in tufts on the ends of the branches. This tree has a very attractive form, without being weeping, and makes the perfect specimen for your garden, or planted in a pot. The leaves begin in spring as a soft, light red, turn plum-red for the summer, and then take on many shades of bright red in fall. The fall color is like a spectacular sunset, and the spring color is like a mellow one – no wonder this variety is called ‘Oregon Sunset’. Use it in the foreground of a bed of larger shrubs, as a specimen, and of course as a center-piece in your Asian-themed garden design. Since it is a smaller tree, it will grow for many, many years in a large pot, so it can be moved around to show it off at key seasons. It can also be used to create a beautiful bonsai tree.

  • Graceful soft-red in spring, and plum red in summer
  • Spectacular fall display of many vibrant shades of red
  • Small, with a broad spreading form for gardens of any size
  • Easily grown with minimal basic care
  • Grows well in a container for many years

Plant your Oregon Sunset Japanese Maple in a sunny spot in cooler areas, and in a spot with morning sun and afternoon shade during the summer months, in warmer areas. Enrich the soil with organic material, and always keep the soil moist, to avoid sun-burn of the leaves. This is an easy tree to grow, with no significant pests or diseases, if you follow these simple rules It is hardy in zone 5, and grows well in most parts of the country, especially in areas with regular rainfall.
