Japanese Maple Seedling Bonsai Starter
Japanese maple (Acer palmatum) seedlings are the wild-type green foliage Japanese maple. Because Japanese maple has diverse genetic character the seedlings can be variable in growth habit and other characteristics. Among the classic species for bonsai, these maples are valued for their delicate foliage and beautiful fall color which is typically red. Unlike commercial nursery stock, bonsai starters are not grafted, avoiding unsightly changes in bark character and bulging.
The starter tree you will receive is in a 3.3" nursery container, with a trunk about 1/8-1/4", and from 12-36" of growth. May have 1-3 strong shoots. The main trunk has been previously gently wired and some light wire marks may be present, but will fade as the tree continues to grow. (wire already removed.) In the case of trees that are taller than 24" we may trim the top terminal bud and growth for shipping. The tree has been in the container for 1 year, so it can be repotted or left for an additional year. We recommend repotting into a 1-gallon size container to continue trunk development.
