Acer palmatum 'Hime shojo'

 

A perfect accent in a rock garden or a collectors specimen, Hime Shojo Japanese Maple grows into a five foot tall by four foot thickly branched upright teardrop. Its leaves are red during the spring flush and mature to a deep maroon during summer for the remainder of the year. New growth will continue through summer months giving this maple a special contrast all season. In hot climates, it will like dappled afternoon shade.

 

Our Japanese Maples are sold in 2 or 3 gallon pots. They are larger and more mature than a typical one gallon specimen. Since all Japanese Maples are generally slow growing, it is advised to choose a more mature plant when installing into your landscape. If you would like a current photo of any specimen, please send us an email.

 

Hime Shojo will begin shipping March 1, 2024.

Japanses Maples are easy to grow in a sunny spot with space to spread out.  A little dappled shade in the afternoon is a good idea in warmer states as the leaves can be stressed in the hottest months of the year.
