The Most Sun Tolerant Japanese Maples

Japanese Maple

We think all Japanese Maples perform best in some afternoon shade or as an understory tree, especially when young. However, there are a few that seem to tolerate the full sun better than most, particularly when a three to four-inch layer of mulch is used under the tree but not touching the trunk. You may still experience some scorching and leaf tip burn, depending on the year and the heat and wind exposure.

This list includes some of our favorite Japanese Maples that we tested here in the nursery that resulted in very little sun damage by the end of the summer.

Bloodgood 20ft, Tree, Deep red foliage with prominent seeds. Fall: Crimson.

Crimson Queen 9ft, Mound, Spring: Purple-red, Summer: Red, Fall: Scarlet.

Emperor One 15ft, Tree, Spring and Summer: Purple-red foliage with blackish bark.

Fireglow 12ft, Tree, Spring: Bright fiery red, Summer: Red, One of the best red leaf variegated. Slow grower. Good in pots.

June Garden Guide
Checkbox

Check water systems to ensure they are working properly and that you are not wasting precious water. Install Drip Irrigation Systems to water your garden more efficiently.

Checkbox

Invest in Hose Nozzles with a shut-off feature to prevent excess loss of water when watering pots and garden areas by hand.

Checkbox

Monitor your plants for pests. Bring the pest to the nursery in a plastic bag so we can try to identify the problem and direct you to the right product to remedy the situation. We stock complete lines of organic and conventional pest controls. Three products that are helpful to organic gardeners: Captain Jack’s Dead Bug Brew (with Spinosad) for insect control, Concern’s Copper Soap Fungicide or Serenade for disease control, and Sluggo for snail and slug control.

Checkbox

Clean ponds and fountains. We have products that can help reduce algae and clarify the water. We also have a nice selection of pond plants to add beauty to your water feature.

Checkbox

Deadhead flowers and lightly fertilize. We use ¼ - ½ strength Maxsea All Purpose on all our flowers, hanging baskets, and veggies on a weekly basis.  This ensures constant nutrients for healthy growth and an abundance of flowers.

Checkbox

Mulch areas with Western Bark Chips to help give your garden a finished and professional appearance. Mulching also helps save water, reduce weeds and retain nutrients. For best results, we recommend a two-inch layer on the soil surface. Each 2-cu. ft. bag will cover 12 square feet.

Checkbox

Replace old, woody perennials and annuals. We carry money-saving sizes in Jumbo six packs and in four-inch pots that will grow and fill in quickly to help you stretch your budget. We can help you find some new combinations that will freshen up your look.

Checkbox

Stake and feed your tomatoes and other container raised vegetables with natural Gardner & Bloome Tomato & Vegetable Fertilizer.  We also have an assortment of Tomato Cages in fun colors and various sizes.

Checkbox

Harvest your early producing fruit crops such as cherries, apricots, berries, etc. If you’ve been thinking about having your own backyard orchard, choose from our selection of plants that produce Edible Fruits including Citrus, Apricots, Apples, Blueberries, Cherries, Grapes, Pineapple Guavas, Nectarines, Peaches, Pears, Plums, Pluots, Persimmons, Pomegranates, and assorted Berries.


Water Wisely

Even though we experienced a very wet winter, we want to encourage plant lovers to garden wisely by following a few important water conserving tips. These suggestions will help you be successful in your yard every year, wet or dry! For more info, go to www.watersavingtips.org

  1. 1. Spread 1-3 inches of mulch around all plants, especially newly planted ones. For each inch of mulch you use, you reduce water usage up to 10%.

    2. Check your soil for moisture BEFORE watering to see if it is really necessary. Established gardens can often go for weeks without needing water depending on your soil type and the weather.

    3. When you do water, apply it slowly and for an extended period of time. This will help reduce runoff and encourage deep roots.

    4. Do not over fertilize with high nitrogen fertilizers. Nitrogen increases soft new growth which then requires more water to support the plant.

    5. Reduce the size of plants by pruning excess growth.
