The Japanese Maple is, the most "ornamental" of the Ornamental Trees. Growing low to the ground and wide, they are always an intriguing "showcase" tree. Japanese Maple are slow-growing and thus expensive. We carry larger ones, and each one is unique. Different shades of green or red leaves, and various shades of great fall color.
What to Expect the First Year:
Each year they are growing in our fields these trees leaf-out beautifully; but the first year after digging/planting they are putting their efforts into establishing their roots. This causes them to have smaller leaves than they usually would. By the second year they should be back to normal.
