Japanese maples - Knowledgebase Question

midvale, UT
Question by rogerwhetman

Japanese maples such as Fire Glow, Bloodgood. I know they don't like full sun but I was told they will adapt. I have neighbors that have them and they seem to do fine. I am looking for some larger sizes (10-12 ft). Any suggestions on where to find them? I would like to purchase some for spring planting but there is not much selection around here.

Please advise, Thank you.

Most Japanese maples will show leaf scorch when planted where they receive afternoon sunshine. Bloodgood is an exception and tends to do well in full sunshine. If the only site you have to plant receives full sunshine, Bloodgood would be your best choice. While you won't find a Monrovia retailer in your own town, here are a few retailers not far from you:
