Full Sun, Partial Sun

Everyone loves Japanese maples, but if you have a sunny garden you may have been told that Japanese Maples will not take sun, but the Red Dragon Japanese Maple is the exception to that. Much more sun tolerant that other forms, this beautiful, cascading small tree will thrive in the open and in full sun, as long as some water is available in the hottest months.

• Best choice for sunny locations
• Wonderful seasonal variety of leaf colors
• Perfect size for smaller gardens or spaces
• Gorgeous cascading branches
• Grows in any ordinary soil

Red Dragon Japanese Maple has fingered leaves like the claws of a dragon and in spring they emerge a bright cherry red, turn burgundy over summer, holding their color well and then exploding into crimson tones in fall. Happy in ordinary garden conditions, this is the perfect starter Japanese Maple, and the pick of connoisseurs too.
