The green Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum) is originally from Japan, China and Korea. It owes its botanical name to the hand-shaped leaves with in most cases five pointed lobes (palma is the Latin word for the palm of hand).
The bark of younger trees is normally green or reddish and turns light grey or greyish brown with age. The greenish yellow flowers stand in clusters, appear in May - June and develop into maple seeds shaped like little paired winged nuts which float to the ground like propellers when mature.
There are countless cultivars of the Japanese Maple with manifold leave colours and shapes and diverse habits and sizes, which are very popular as ornamental shrubs.
The young shoots in spring have yellowish, orange or even bright red leaves. The Japanese Maple is also well-known and popular for its very attractive yellow, orange and red autumn colours
- It is best to pot your seeds in Autumn or stratify your seeds before planting.
- Be sure to use a self-draining pot that's approximately 6" deep.
- Fill 1/4 of the bottom of the pot with a layer of gravel and a layer of fine clay
- Add a mix of potting compost, fine clay and gravel to the second 1/4 of the pot - This should have your pot full to about 3" deep
- Place seeds on the surface at approximately 2-5cm apart
- Cover the seeds with a new layer of the same mixture of potting compost, fine clay and gravel
- Water the soil a fair amount, avoiding a fine nozzle that may disturb the layers
- Keep your seed bed warm, preferably in sunlight
- Keep your seed bed damp, but not too wet
- After seeds germinate do not prune or re-pot seeds until the next spring season
- Seeds can be separated and re-potted in bigger pots after the first year or unrestricted growth
- Train your seeds to become Bonsai trees with wiring, pruning and patience.
