Coral Bark Japanese Maple Growing and Maintenance Tips

Thrives in a moist, organically rich, well-drained soil. Grows best in dappled shade to maintain its colour. To promote new stem growth with better colour, prune out some of the older branches. Mulch well, but avoid heaping mulch against the stem.
