With its stunning foliage and weeping form, the Tamukeyama Japanese Maple is a highly desirable specimen tree. Botanically known as Acer palmatum dissectum 'Tamukeyama', this Japanese Maple develops a fine display of deeply dissected, crimson-red leaves in spring that turn a dark purple-red come fall. As a dwarf specimen, Tamukeyama is ideally suited for smaller or urban gardens. The Tamukeyama Japanese Maple is hard to beat for color and interest.
Over time, this Japanese Maple will develop a graceful mound of weeping foliage to no more than 8 feet tall. Being deciduous, it drops its leaves as the temperatures fall to reveal a wonderful framework of deep red bark. Requiring little pruning, this small tree is low maintenance and can be grown in USDA zones 5 to 8. The Tamukeyama Japanese Maple is perfect for growing as a specimen tree where its color and texture can be appreciated.
Tamukeyama Japanese Maple Care
Due to its dwarf form, the Tamukeyama Japanese Maple is unlikely to interfere with any overhead structures or power lines. However, to thrive, this Japanese Maple does require fertile, free-draining soil that is slightly acidic. It can be grown in either full sun or partial shade, but appreciates some shade in the afternoon, especially in the South. It prefers moist soil and an application of mulch annually to help conserve moisture and suppress any weeds.
The Tamukeyama Japanese Maple rarely requires pruning. Nevertheless, any dead or misplaced branches can be removed, and the tree can be lightly shaped when dormant in the winter. To encourage new growth, a slow-release fertilizer can be applied in early spring.
Tamukeyama Japanese Maple Spacing
When mature, the Tamukeyama Japanese Maple can grow to 6-8 feet tall with a spread of 8-9 feet. When planting this Japanese Maple, you’ll want to allow space for its canopy to spread as it matures.
