The Tobiosho Japanese Maple is one of the fastest growing of all the Japanese maples. If you love these trees, but aren’t sure you can grow one, this is the tree to start with. It has green leaves with broader lobes that resist scorching, and it grows 12 to 15 inches a year, comfortably reaching 15 feet within ten years. The fall colors are probably the best of any tree, beginning gold, turning orange and ending in an explosion of scarlet – you must see it to believe it. It forms a broad, multi-stem tree that is perfect as a specimen in a smaller, perhaps urban garden, or planted in beds or woodlands in a larger garden.

  • Superb fall colors of gold, orange and scarlet
  • Fast-growing and reliable small tree
  • Perfect tree for a smaller garden
  • Easily grown and hardy in zone 5
  • Suitable for new gardens and new gardeners

The Tobiosho Japanese Maple can be grown in full sun in zones 5 and 6, if the soil is not dry. In warmer zones some afternoon shade is best. Deep shade will slow growth and reduce the fall colors. Plant in moist, well-drained soil, enriched with organic material. Mulch to keep the roots cool and conserve moisture. This is one of the easiest Japanese maples to grow, and we recommend it to new gardeners for its speed of growth, hardiness and reliability.
