Description

Considered by many horticulturists to be one of the best Japanese Maples, the Tamukeyama even received the Gold Medal from the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society. Beyond being absolutely stunning, the Tamukeyama Lace Leaf is a compact and hardy variety that is extremely low maintenance. And the color? You are sure to love 3 seasons of regal reds and purples. There is no question, this beauty should definitely be considered when shopping new trees for sale.

The weeping shape, cascading branches, and lacy, petite leaves of this variety are a sight to behold. In spring, leaves emerge a deep purple-red. As spring becomes summer the reds begin to take over. Cool weather arrives, bringing about the final leaf transition, a bright, bold, scarlet red.

This ancient variety is a perfect accent or focal tree for water, rock, or meditation gardens as well as decks, patios and anywhere you need a pop of great color and style! This compact Maple can tolerate full sun in cooler climates. However, in southern regions be sure that your tree receives afternoon shade to avoid sun scorch. Keeping your soil moist, but not wet will also help protect your Japanese Tamukeyama Maple from summer heat and sun. With proper watering this variety rarely has issues with pests or diseases. Plan for a mature height of 6 to 8 feet and spread of 8 to 12. This variety is great for containers and tends to stay a bit smaller in a container.

How To Care

When planting your Tamukeyama 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 freezing and hot temperatures you can plant your Maple trees 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 or 6. In sunny spots you may see some leaf scorch when these trees are young, especially if they are not getting adequate water. 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 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 to 3 inches of mulch. Do not allow the mulch to touch the trunk as this increases the chances of pests and disease. Japanese Maples should be watered often enough to keep the soil moist. Do not allow the 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. When planting take care not to burn the roots by mixing the fertilizer into the soil before placing your tree in the hole. Lace Leaf Maples don't generally require pruning, but, if needed, it should be done when they are dormant to remove any dead, dying, or crowded branches, or to maintain shape. Learn more on How to prune Japanese Maples.

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. Scale, Mites, and Aphid are insects that can occasionally affect Japanese Maples. You can treat these pests naturally with horticultural oil, neem oil, or insecticidal soap. For severe infections you can use pesticides like carbaryl, also known as Sevin. Another potential pest of Japanese Maples is the Japanese Beetle. Look into parasitic nematodes and bacillus thuringiensis for effective, organic control of this pest. An alternative to help prevent outdoor pests is also Growing Japanese Maples in pots.

Tamukeyama Japanese Maple is elegant

Happy with this purchase. The tree is delicate and I took much care in planting it. Already the lace-type leaves are turning a bright red Fall color. Don't know how quickly it grows, but we have patience:) Thank you Planting Tree.

Japanese maple

I recently bought a Japoanese maple and the tree was not what i pictured at all. It looks okay as planted but is literally one small stick and too expensive for what it looks like-thin and frail. The other camilias are beautiful though and as described.

Ordered Two

I ordered two tamukeyama trees and rate the overall experience five stars. Both plants arrived quickly and very well packed. Both plants are healthy looking and I look forward to watching them grow and fill out year after year. However I thought you should know that one tree was quite noticeably larger and fuller than the other one. I know that in the long run this will make no difference, and they will be planted in different locations.

My Experience with The Planting Tree

Ordering, shipping and delivery went very smoothly. The plants were all healthy appearing. The coral branch Japanese Maple was much larger than I expected which was a real plus. Since it’s been raining every day since they arrived, they haven’t been planted. I removed the plastic bags and replaced some soil that was in the bags and placed them in pots. They all arrived well hydrated and am keeping the soil damp. My only complaint is I needed help removing from boxes as there were huge staples. along all box seams that I didn’t expect. I plan to order more plants after these get into the ground and would definitely recommend The Planting Tree to family and friends. Thank you so very much.
