Planting Japanese Maples

Location is something that should be considered. Nearly all dwarf Japanese maples can handle growing in the shade or getting morning sun and afternoon shade. For planting dwaf Japanese maple trees in the sun it is important to make sure you are getting a selection that can handle full sun in your area. We have plenty of dwarf Japanese maples that grow and do well in full sun in Zone 8. When you get to zone 9, many of the dwarf Japanese maples should be planted with protection from the hot afternoon sun. There are a few dwarf maples we carry that can handle full sun in zone 9.

One of the most important things to remember is that dwarf Japanese maples do not like wet feet. This means that heavily boggy areas will need raised beds that allow drainage for the dwarf Japanese maple roots. This can simply be done by raising the area where you will be planting the dwarf Japanese maple with more soil.

The whole should be dug 1.5 times bigger than than container the dwarf Japanese maple is in. This extra size is primarily to losen the soil for the roots of your dwarf Japanese maple which will allow for it to get established quicker. Take the dwarf Japanese maple out of the container and place it in the whole. The main thing to remember when planting a dwarf Japanese maple is that it should be planted level with where the soil level was in the container. This is important as dwarf Japanese maples planted too deeply do not perform well in the landscape. This means that you will have to put part of the soil that you already dug back into the whole before planting.

People often ask where or not they should condition their soil for the dwarf Japanese maple. For the most part, you shouldn't. Dwarf Japanese maples can do well in both sandy soils and clay soils. When you ammend the soil they have to get established in your ammendments and then get established in the exterior soil.

Container Growing Japanese Maples

Dwarf Japanese maples have a non-invasive root system that makes them ideal for container growing and bonsai culture. This will allow you to bring the ornamental appeal of Dwarf Japanese maple to your deck, patio, poolside, and driveway expanding your garden. The concept of how big a Dwarf Japanese maple will get in a container is similar to that of how big a goldfish will get inside a bowl. A dwarf Japanese maple will grow the size container it is put in. A small container will dwarf the size of the tree from the size the tree would naturally be in the landscape. Dwarf Japanese maples are often used in containers because they get fairly close to full-size in most containers. The best tip for container growing is a well-drained pot.


1. Choose your dwarf Japanese maple based on the location you plan on growing your container grown maple (ex. Sun or shade?).

2. Select the container you would like to use. The primary thing to look for is good drainage. You may be able to drill extra holes in non-ceramic containers. At least one drain hole is necessary. For containers with only one drain hole, you may consider lining the bottom of the container with 1-2 inches of medium sized gravel to increase drainage.

3. Soil should be selected based on how frequently you plan on watering the plant. For dwarf Japanese maples that will be regularly watered by an irrigation system, a soil with more perlite is ideal. An example of this would be a regular bag of miracle grow mix. For dwarf Japanese maples that will not be on a regular irrigation system, make sure to add more peat moss to the mixture. This will allow for the maple itself to retain a higher amount of moisture. When adding the soil to the container make sure to keep the root collar and trunk of the Dwarf Japanese Maple at the same level it was in itís previous container. It is also good to leave at least 1/2 inch to 2 inches of the top lip of the container free from soil. This allows for thedwarf Japanese maple to be watered effectively.

4. Select a companion plant such as small sedums that can cover the soil-surface to reduce heat and moisture loss for the roots of the maple. When choosing a companion plant it is essential to use only plants with extremely shallow and tiny root systems that will not grow into the roots of the dwarf Japanese maple.

5. Water frequently based on the finger test. If the soil around your dwarf Japanese maple feels dry, water.

6. For small containers (smaller than a nursery 3 gallon) check the root system of your dwarf Japanese maple during the winter every 3 years. If the root ball is getting very thick, trim the root system leaving 3/4 of the root system. Add soil as necessary. For larger containers, you can go much longer without root pruning the roots of your dwarf Japanese maple. We suggest checking every 7-8 years. For those that do not want to root prune, you can always upgrade your dwarf Japanese maple to a larger pot size or put the tree in the landscape, however, with a few minutes of root pruning every few years a dwarf Japanese maple can stay in any pot for its entire life

Care of Japanese Maples

*Dwarf Japanese maples that have been stressed should be given Super Thrive at recommended doses from the bottle. This can often be purchased at Wal-Mart or your local garden center or department store. This simply gives dwarf Japanese maples the proper nutrients and hormones that will help it heal and recover and help it get back into a growing mode.

Dwarf Japanese maples are extremely easy to care for. The less you do the better. Dwarf Japanese maples do not like a lot of nitrogen so fertilizers are not necessary. Fertilizers with low amounts of nitrogen can be used in the early spring and mid-summer, however it is not necessary.

Trimming your Dwarf Japanese maple can actually make your tree grow faster. If you trim the smaller branches back leaving larger and thicker branching with buds, your tree will often grow very quickly. This is because you get a cleaner flow or nutrients from Dwarf Japanese maples that have been trimmed. It is like excersing your dwarf Japanese maples. It is best to do this in the early spring right before your dwarf Japanese maple leafs out. This is typically around the late February to early March time period for us in North Carolina. The main trick for trimming is to never trim more than 45% of your tree off. Yes, that means you can trim a dwarf Japanese maple heavily. Remember to clean your pruning tools with rubbing alcohol. This helps keep your pruning tools sanitized which helps your dwarf Japanese maple stay healthy.

Steps for Pruning:

1. Start out by pruning out branches you don't like on your dwarf Japanese maple. If the branch is larger than 3/4 of an inch in diameter we recommend using a saw. Large branches you don't like only get bigger so it is best to prune them out early in the tree's life.

2. Prune out the twiggier smaller branching. Smaller branching only makes smaller branching. This means these will make the tree grow slower. By pruning your Japanese maple and leaving the large branching you will get a larger tree quicker.

3. Trim out conflicting branching on your Japanese maple. This means if two limbs are touching are are too close, one of them should be trimmed out. A lot of pruning is judgement calls. Picking which one stays and which one goes will be a judgement call that only the owner or the pruner can make.

4. If you are trimming an upright selection, make sure to keep one branch as a central leader. This is typically the tallest part of the tree on most upright dwarf Japanese maples. If you are trimming a dwarf or a laceleaf dwarf Japanese maple, you can trim the dwarf Japanese maple to accentuate the natural shape of the tree. This can be done with laceleaf types by trimming your dwarf Japanese maple to create different levels of branching.

5. Trim out the fishtails. When there are three small branches coming out of the terminal buds on the end of a branch, it is often good to trim out the middle branch. This gives room for the other two branches and allows them have more energy.

While trimming is not necessary, if you follow these steps, your dwarf Japanese maple should grow much quicker for you.
