Over the years our customers have repeatedly asked for Japanese Maples and we refused to sell them knowing that they were not winter hardy for Wyoming… that is until now! The Korean Maple is so similar that we can easily fool ourselves with this cold tolerant cousin. Korean Maple is a small tree with attractive palmate 7-9 lobed dark green leaves with smooth gray bark. Autumn color is a brilliant combination of orange, scarlet and yellow. Trials from our Colorado grower have shown them to do well in clay, alkaline soils. It can be planted in full sun but does best in partial shade. A great tree that can be planted near the patio, in the perennial bed or clustered much like an aspen grove.

Throughout this site, the following are used as guidelines for watering established plants:

water_drops_icon  These truly xeric plants can live with our 12 inches of natural annual precipitation and only need a winter watering during a multi-year drought, but they will thrive with a monthly watering. Overwatering will kill some of these.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants are adapted to intermittent deep watering with soil drying to a depth of a few inches between waterings. Watering frequency may be every couple of weeks during the active growing season and maybe only one winter watering for optimal care.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants need regular watering somewhat like a bluegrass lawn so that they never dry to depth in the root system during the active growing season, and need occasional winter watering to prevent root dessication and resultant plant death.

About sizes of our plants:

Sizes indicated with a # are roughly the equivalent in gallonage; so a #2 is about a 2 gallon pot size; b&b stands for balled and burlapped.
