Acer Palmatum Dwarf ‘Pixie’
Japanese maple Pixie is a dwarf maple similar to Bloodgood but maturing at half the size. Their maroon leaves retain their color throughout the summer then adding more red tones as fall progresses. It’s a superb specimen ornamental which must be planted in a location sheltered from the hot afternoon sun and strong winds.
Height: 6′ – 8′.
Width: 5′ – 6′
Exposure: Morning sun.
Fall Color: Burgundy-red.
Water: Water regularly in 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.
