The Maple Society Japanese Maple FAQ
If you’re new to Japanese Maples, or just looking for a refresher, maybe you’ll find the answer to your question in our FAQ.
Just remember, there are as many opinions as there are gardeners!
And Japanese Maples grow well in widely different climates, from dry and sunny central California to rainy southern England to sub-tropical Hong Kong. “Full sun” doesn’t mean the same thing in each of these places, so we recommend you adapt the advice here to your locale. (An example might be using a slightly more water retentive soil in very hot climates.)
What you’ll see here is common wisdom, collected from the many decades of experience at the Maple Society.
Can’t find what you’re looking for in the FAQ? Maple Society members can ask the Society directly about their maple problems.
