Fern-leaf Japanese Maple Growing and Maintenance Tips

This Japanese maple cultivar can be trained to grow more upright, or left to cascade and mound naturally. Likes protection from drying winds and hot, afternoon sun. Grows best in a slightly moist, fertile soil. Add mulch regularly, but avoid heaping the mulch against the stem.
