Ash and Nancy's Japanese Maple Nursery garners plenty of praise from Acer lovers for their selection of high quality trees and Scarlet Princess is another glowing testament to their expertise! This spectacular dwarf laceleaf grows only a few feet high but has a powerful presence that can't be ignored. It boast vivid pinkish red spring foliage that steadily matures to that classic crimson we know and love. Its dense and compact habit makes it perfect for filling tight spaces or for livening up a container garden. Scarlet Princess is incredibly vigorous and needs heavy and consistent pruning in its first year to ensure its stays the ideal size.

Taller than I expected

I have a small Japanese maple in my garden that stays low. From the description of the compactness and density of the foliage, I expected to receive a small plant. I knew I was in trouble when I saw the long box arrive. The tree is already about three feet tall and will clearly be a tree, not a shrub. I had to revise my plan for it and find another spot for it where it will be inconspicuous until it grows in. Not a tragedy, but a disappointment.
