Japanese Red Maple

Highly Prized Ornamental
This is the scene in a movie where the woman in the red dress enters a party—Japanese Maple is best known for its spellbinding orange-red fall color. And most any garden can benefit from a little more color and grace. It's a prized ornamental plant in the gardening world, especially as you can prune in early summer to get just the look you're hoping for. It can be grown as a standard tree or with multiple trunks. It reaches up to 20' tall but can be kept at a more manageable size for small gardens. Connoisseurs can even use it for outdoor bonsai—the beauty in the fiery red foliage easily shows off your skill in this art form.
