Japanese Maples are native to Japan with close links to species in China and Korea. Literally translated, Acer is “maple” and Palmatum “hand”, for the five-lobed leaves bearing a resemblance to the human hand. These trees are a popular bonsai in Japan and the Western world and can grow from 15 – 25 feet.

Japanese Maples have slender, arching branches which support an open canopy of delicate lobed leaves. The leaves on new shoots vary from yellow to orange-ish to red, with autumn colours equally as bright. Small yellowish flowers develop in late spring to early summer. The bark of young trees is green, red in some varieties, turning to a light grey or brown as the tree matures.
