Japanese Maples - Knowledgebase Question

Layton, Ut
Question by markgreator

I planted our Japanese maple trees on the south sids of our Utah Home and it appears that the area gets too much sun and heat for them, I'd like to move to back yard, but still gets lots of sun. Any recommendations?

Japanese maples do best with morning sun and filtered afternoon sunshine. Try to find a spot in your backyard that receives some shade, or try planting a vine on a trellis to shield the maple from hot afternoon sunshine. If that's not an option you may want to plant it in a large container and set it near the house where it will get some protection from the sun. Best wishes with your maple!
