Acer Palmatum ‘Adrian’s Compact’

Japanese Maple Adrian's Compact

This little Japanese Maple grows to about 5 foot tall and three foot wide after 10 years. New leaves start out as bright red turning scarlet and orange in the fall. They are particularly well suited to small gardens and accents in bed foregrounds. They grow best if protected from the scorching summer sun.

Height: 4′ – 6′ after 10 years.

Width: 3′ – 5′

Exposure: Full sun to part shade (protect from hot afternoon sun).

Fall Color: Scarlet-orange.

Water: Water regularly in rich well drained soil. Use mulch for moisture retention. Do not let them dry out especially while the tree is being established.

Fertilizer: Use a slow release fertilizer. Be careful not to over-fertilize resulting in burned-out shriveled leaves.

Pruning: Prune lightly to shape, removing crossed and rubbing branches. Excessive pruning, especially in the summer heat, can damage the branches.

This little maple is often used as bonsai and can be pruned in those styles.
