The Red Pygmy Japanese Maple has unique leaves, arranged in long, thin segments that look like a willow tree. The weeping leaves give this tree a graceful form, as it grows from a mound of branches into an upright specimen 6 feet tall and almost as much across. In spring it is simply gorgeous, with glowing red foliage that is a beacon in your garden. After passing the summer a cool and calming olive-green, the leaves explode into gold and orange tones for the fall. This lovely tree is a stand-out specimen for any bed, especially in smaller gardens and Asian-influenced ones.

  • Unique leaves of long, slender lobes like willow
  • Graceful small tree that makes a stunning specimen
  • Vibrant red leaves in spring and early summer
  • Olive-green foliage in summer
  • Fabulous fall display of gold and orange in fall

Protect the leaves of the Red Pygmy Japanese Maple from scorching by growing it in morning sun and afternoon shade. Some sun is beneficial to develop the best leaf colors. In containers use a well-drained potting soil. No pruning or training is required to develop this tree’s graceful form, and it is normally never bothered by pests or diseases. Moist, well-drained soil is best, enriched with organic material, and mulched each spring. Water regularly, especially during the first few years, to develop a deep root-system to sustain healthy growth.
