Japanese Maple Tamuke yama

· Here stands a weeping variety cut leaf red Japanese maple


· Slow growing, will reach 6’ H x 8’W after 10 or more years of growth; some consider it a dwarf tree; can be a container planting


· Prefers well-draining sandy soil; in nature, grows with dappled sun under tree canopy above it; turns bright red in fall


· Plant shallow and water well first few years – mulching roots a good idea
