Peaches And Cream Japanese Maple is a dense deciduous dwarf tree with a picturesque vase-shaped form. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other landscape plants with less refined foliage.
This is a relatively low maintenance dwarf tree, and should only be pruned in summer after the leaves have fully developed, as it may 'bleed' sap if pruned in late winter or early spring. It has no significant negative characteristics.
Peaches And Cream Japanese Maple will grow to be about 8 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 10 feet. It has a low canopy with a typical clearance of 1 feet from the ground. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 60 years or more.
This dwarf tree should be grown in a location that is shaded from the hot afternoon sun. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is particular about its soil conditions, with a strong preference for rich, neutral soils. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution, and will benefit from being planted in a relatively sheltered location. Consider applying a thick mulch around the root zone in winter to protect it in exposed locations or colder zones.
