Product Description

Acer palmatum cv 赤い火山 Akai Kazan Deshojo, commonly known as Akai Kazan Japanese Maple, is a highly sought-after cultivar of the Japanese maple species, Acer palmatum. Known for its striking appearance and vibrant foliage, this cultivar adds a touch of elegance to gardens and landscapes.

Acer palmatum cv 赤い火山 Akai Kazan Deshojo is a deciduous, small to medium-sized tree that typically grows to a height of 10 to 15 feet (3 to 4.5 meters). It features a gracefully spreading canopy with delicate, deeply lobed, palmate leaves. What sets "Deshojo" apart is its stunning foliage, which emerges in the spring as brilliant crimson-red, gradually transitioning to greenish-red during the summer months. In the fall, the leaves transform into vibrant shades of fiery orange and scarlet, creating a breathtaking display of autumn colors. The bark of this cultivar is typically smooth and grayish, adding to its overall appeal.

Cultivation:

  1. Location: Plant Acer palmatum cv 赤い火山 Akai Kazan Deshojo in a location that receives dappled sunlight to partial shade. Protect it from harsh afternoon sun, especially in hot climates, to prevent leaf scorch.

  2. Soil: Ensure the soil is well-draining, rich in organic matter, and slightly acidic to neutral in pH. Japanese maples are sensitive to alkaline soils.

  3. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Provide regular watering, especially during dry spells. Mulching around the base of the tree helps retain soil moisture.

  4. Pruning: Prune as needed to maintain the desired shape and remove any dead or crossed branches. The best time for major pruning is during late winter or early spring while the tree is dormant.

  5. Fertilization: Fertilize sparingly with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in early spring. Avoid excessive fertilization, as it can lead to excessive growth and reduced color intensity in the leaves.

  6. Mulching: Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base of the tree to conserve soil moisture, regulate temperature, and suppress weeds. Keep mulch away from the trunk to prevent rot.

  7. Pests and Diseases: Japanese maples are generally susceptible to pests like aphids, scale insects, and spider mites. Inspect the tree regularly and treat any infestations promptly. They are also prone to fungal diseases, so ensure good air circulation.

  8. Winter Protection: In colder climates, protect young or newly planted Deshojo Japanese Maples from harsh winter conditions with burlap wraps or by covering them with a protective layer of mulch.

Acer palmatum cv 赤い火山 Akai Kazan Deshojo is cherished for its exquisite foliage and ornamental value. When properly cared for, it becomes a captivating focal point in any garden or landscape, adding a touch of drama and natural beauty throughout the season.
