Trident Maple is a deciduous maple native to China, Japan, and Korea. In its natural environment, this tree can grow to 20-30 feet in height and width. The tree can be distinguished from Acer Palmatum by its three-lobed leaves, as opposed to five on the leaves of the Japanese Maple.
The tree has an airy crown of foliage that turn gorgeous shades of yellow, orange, and red in autumn. The trunk is thick and richly textured in peeling orange-brown bark. The roots readily form interesting gnarls perfect for exposed root styles. Trident Maples are often planted with their thick roots clinging tightly around a rock, creating a dramatic look. The bark on older trees become a pale grey which complements the foliage perfectly.

Very happy with my purchases. Thank you very much. Packaging is very nice and the qr code instruction/information page is super easy to use. I’m yet to plant the seeds but I have them all in the fridge currently for stratification and I’m sure they will do well. Thanks again and thanks for the fast shipping.
I received the bonsai seeds in the packaging shown in the online store and I received excellent customer service from Yugen Bonsai. Yugen Bonsai was very helpful with the shipping process.
Wonderful friendly and helpful service. Looking forward to getting some seedlings growing in the coming weeks.
Excellent company! Great communication and quick delivery. The growing guides were fantastic, thank you.
