AVAILABILITY: All varieties are available for immediate delivery as long as stock is available, unless indicated otherwise. Because rare forms are in limited supply, it is advisable to order early in the spring even on varieties for fall delivery. Every effort is made to supply material in good health and true to name. Please indicate substitutes with your order, if possible.

OUR POLICY: Due to the many problems that can affect maples which are beyond our control, we restrict replacement to a half-price basis during the first 60 days only.

SHIPPING: We prefer to ship maples when they are in a dormant state. However, maples can be shipped any time of the year even in periods of soft growth, only if shipped by air. During the soft growth period, we reserve the right to delay shipment for a short period until the growth hardens. We do sometimes get late soft growth in the fall which can delay shipment.

Most of our trees are container-grown; they can be shipped based on the aforementioned schedule. A few of our trees are field-grown, which means they are not available until they go dormant in the fall.

We try to ship the maples when safe delivery is assured, taking into account that you would like to get the maples when you would like to plant them. To minimize shipping expenses, large sizes are best shipped fully dormant. Any maple measuring 4' or over may require shipment by a method other than FED EX, which can add to the cost of shipping (see index for general shipping information). If your maples arrive at a time that doesn’t permit immediate planting due to weather conditions, they can be safely held as long as dormant, in a cool greenhouse, basement or garage.

ABOUT SIZES: Because of the way maples grow and the different heights at which they are grafted, listing sizes is difficult. For example, two plants of the same cultivar may grow only 6" or may shoot out to 18", but, after the next growth, both plants will be the same size.  Size 1 means 4" to 18", which is generally a one year graft; With dissectum types, the maple may be grafted at 3 ft., but if it is only 1 ft. wide, we list it as Size 1.

GROWTH SIZE: The number listed after the name is the height at ten years of age. of course, size will vary with planting location, fertilization and irrigation. Dissectum varieties can be staked up to the desired height and will generally cascade down and out from there.

ACER JAPONICUM CULTIVARS Note: The common name Japanese Maple usually refers to trees from palmatum species, however, many other fine species share similar characteristics and are indeed native to Japan. We suggest you look at Acer japonicum and Acer shirasawanum, in particular. For additional information regarding Japanese maples, there are excellent books listed in our Book Section.

Acer japonicum — 10-15’. Known as the Full Moon Maple, this outstanding species and its cultivars are prized by gardeners all over the world.

Fall tones are brilliant yellow, orange, and crimson. ‘Green Cascade’ is the discovery of the late Art Wright of Canby, Oregon. 2-3’ $49.95, 3-4’ $69.95

50171 Acer negundo ‘Flamingo’ — 30’. (-30oF, USDA Zones 4-9). Beautiful and interesting leaves emerge hot pink with white and gradually turn to white and green while still keeping some of the pink.

ACER SHIRASAWANUM & CULTIVARS

Acer shirasawanum — 15’. (-20oF, USDA Zones 5-8). This tree will frequently be wider than it is tall with a multibranched growth habit. The bark is gray to greyish-brown. The light green leaves emerge in May. Their delicate nature and broad, serrated lobes (9-13 of them) create a wonderful texture contrast when planted with other maples. Fall brings a melding of golden and crimson to the foliage of this landscape gem.

50020 Acer shirasawanum ‘Aureum’ - Golden Full Moon — 20’. The name of this tree comes from the golden, roundish leaves that are shallowly separated into 11, pointed lobes. Often the tips will turn bright red in fall, leaving the center of the leaf shining like a golden full moon. In spring, the leaves unfold pale yellow-green that will deepen into golden tones with summer sunshine. Too much sun can burn them in hotter climates. Slow stubby growth gives ‘Aureum’ a compactness that is ideal for container growing. Since this tree is very slow growing when young, Size 1 will be small. #1 $35.95, 1-2’ $39.95, 4-5’ $119.95, 5-6’ $139.95

50143 Acer shirasawanum ‘Autumn Moon’— 20’. Similar to Aureum’ in leaf shape and growth pattern, but this maple has pink to purple tints to the leaves all summer. A wonderful large shrub or multistemmed tree. 2-3’ $69.95

This is a stubby growing short tree with an intricate and dense structure as opposed to the open growth habit of the species. Leaves are a rich dark green which turn into brilliant orange tones in the fall. To add to the fall show, the samaras also turn orange around the edges and are held in pretty, tight bunches like little bouquets. We’re excited to have ‘Junihitoe’ added to our list of shirasawanum cultivars. 2-3’ $69.95

Rounded leaves cut half way to the leaf base, silvery yellow green in spring and yellow, sometimes tinged with red in the fall. Similar to, but more refined than A. s. ‘Kinugasa yama’. 5-6’ $219.95

50008 Acer sieboldianum ‘Sode-no-uchi’ — 6-8’. This dwarf-growing tree is the smallest leafed of the species. It has 1-2" leaves that are bright yellow-green and hold well throughout the season. In the fall the leaves turn yellow to red. It will fit most any type of landscaping and would be particularly nice in containers on your patio. A good bonsai candidate also, as it forms a tight shape with very little pruning. Rare in cultivation. 5-6’ $219.95

Acer tataricum ssp. ginnala - Amur Maple — 25’. (-30oF, USDA Zones 4-8). This should be called Amor Maple, because you’ll fall in love with it!
