Sharp’s Pygmy Japanese Maple is widely recognized as the best and smallest dwarf Japanese maple available. It has established a reputation as the tree to have if you are looking for a dwarf that will stay around two feet tall and two feet across. It is ideal for container growing and makes a perfect bonsai tree without all the training normally required. It also grows well in a raised bed or in a very small garden, where its miniature qualities can be fully appreciated.

Despite its dwarf form, this is not a difficult tree to grow. It will grow in any garden soil that is well-drained and which does not dry completely during summer. Each spring the emerging miniature leaves will be charmingly tipped in red, and each fall the tree will explode into a riot of orange and red. The best colors develop with some sun, so a location that is sunny in the morning, especially in spring and fall, is ideal. Protect your tree from the hot afternoon sun.

  • Widely recognized as the best dwarf Japanese maple available
  • Perfect miniature tree that naturally forms a bonsai effect
  • Miniature spring leaves are tipped in red
  • Beautiful fall colors of orange and red
  • Ideal for container growing

Sharp’s Pygmy Japanese Maple is not subject to significant pest and diseases and simply needs a little fertilizer each spring to reward you with its unique miniature beauty. Even if you have no garden at all you can have this tree growing in a beautiful pot and bringing a breath of nature into your life every time you look at it.
