Pro Tip: Remember this tree loves water so don't neglect its needs just because it can take the heat especially if you plan to grow your Orangeola in a planter. Japanese maples do have some drought tolerance once established, but regular watering will give you a faster-growing, healthier tree and can even prevent or minimize leaf scorch.

Why Is My Orangeola Turning Green?
Enviromental reasons like too much sunlight or not enough sunlight are reasons for your maple to be discolored or look greener than normal. Additional chlorophyl is produced by this tree in order to make up for the missing sunlight thus giving it a green tone.
How Fast Does This Japanese Maple Grow?
This tree is known to be a slow grower and should be expected to grow 1-2 feet per year until it reaches a mature height of 6-8 feet.
Where Should I Plant This Tree?
This adaptable tree thrives in a spot that has well drained, acidic soil and full sun to part shade conditions in grow zones 5-8.
When planting your Orangeola Japanese Maple be sure you have the right location and conditions for your new tree to thrive. Spring and fall are ideal times to plant. However, if you avoid extreme temperatures you can plant your Maple almost any time of the year.
Lace Leaf Japanese Maples tolerate full sun to part shade. Choose part sun/shade unless you are in a cooler growing zone, like a 5, 6, or 7. In sunny spots you may see some leaf scorch when these trees are young, especially if they are not getting adequate water.
Japanese Maples prefer soil that is well-drained, but moist, neutral to slightly acidic, and nutrient rich. However, Japanese Maples will adapt to a variety of soils. Mulching will keep the roots moist and protect them from extreme temperatures in winter. Add a layer of 2 inches of mulch. Do not allow the mulch to touch the trunk as this increases the chances of pests and disease.
Keep your tree watered if you do notice leaf scorch, but don't panic. Leaf Scorch is not going to affect the overall health of your tree. Japanese Maples should be watered often enough to keep the soil moist. Do not allow the soil to dry completely or be overly saturated. Either condition can harm a Japanese Maple.
Fertilize in early spring and when planting to give your tree a boost. Choose a slow release fertilizer.
Lace Leaf Maples don't generally require pruning, but, if needed, prune when they are dormant to remove any dead, dying, or crowded branches, or to maintain shape.
The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants. Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. Japanese maples don't tend to have problems with pests and disease unless they are unhealthy, weakened trees.
