Full Sun to part sun
This hybridized Korean maple was specifically developed by Iseli Nursery to tolerate harsh and dramatic weather changes. Think of this maple as the Japanese maple you wish you could grow here only this one will survive our climate! Best if used with some wind protection in the landscape. In spring the palmate leaves of this small tree emerge red changing to green in summer; then in autumn expect drop dead gorgeous colors of orange scarlet. A great small specimen tree.

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