It gets more popular these years… I think it will replace ‘bloodgood’ soon. Love it!
Love its four season looks: spring the shoots with pink tone light or yellowish green leaves with coral stems. Summer is medium green or yellowish green leaves with coral bark stems. Fall colour is golen/orange beautiful colour with coral bark stems. Winter is coral bark stem stand out in white snow.
我很喜歡此日本楓品種’紅皮’. 在北美四季分明的氣候裡花園有它很吸引人的目光. 春季的新芽是帶有粉紅色的黃綠色葉片,夏天葉片是黃綠色的,秋色是黃橙色. 冬天時紅枝襯著白雪很美麗. 做成盆景會很美…
It is fun to create your own bonsai, ask your neighbour or collect your own Japanese maple tree seeds, grow them in cold weather or in the fridge. Purchase a few suitable sized tea cups or find them in a thrift store at a very cheap price.
Flip the tea cup up side down, use electric drill with a ceramic/glass use drill bit to drill through the tea cup to create a hole for water to drain.
Add just enough organic soil to plant your mini tree in the tea cup pot, place the moss and rock on top of the soil.
Water right away after planting and then let it sit on top of another bigger pot, place them in an area of partial shade for 2 weeks to set.
Water your bonsai regularly, you can leave them outdoors over winter in the bigger pot surrounded with good soil which can avoid easily drying out in winter.
Enjoy your pet plant!
