Dwarf Japanese maple trees maintain a deep red color most of the year, and they look great in containers. The Dwarf Japanese maple is small in stature with profuse branching and vivid color. This tree requires little maintenance and medium water, and it does well in full to partial sun. The Dwarf maple is perfect for a patio or small yard.
