Just keeping you up to date on the winter work here at The Flower Barn. We are in the process of pruning and shaping the JM's.
Major pruning should be done during the dormant season of the year - generally November-January in our area. Thoughtful pruning and shaping should be done each year. Here are a couple of pruning hints we have to pass on-

#1 Cuts should be made just beyond a pair of buds
#2 Cut on larger limbs should be made above a branch's collar
- the ridge or line where the branch joins an older branch or STEM.
#3 Have SHARP AND CLEAN pruning tools - good practice to dip in rubbing alcohol to sanitize between trees
#4 Do Not cover the wound, but allow to dry naturally.

That's all for now. We will be back soon with hints on transplanting your container Japanese Maples.

Thanks for taking the time to check on the trees

Just about time for this colorful Japanese Maple to change to its fall foliage. Orangeola is this tree's name. It is a weeping dissectum (or lace leaf ) introduced in 1980. Bright red-orange as it comes out in the spring. Right now it still has its summer rich green foliage with an orange over tone. . Soon it will morph to a dark red before turning it leaves into a fiery orange fall display. Orangeola is vigorous but on the shorter side. Just reaching 10 ft when full grown. It is more upright than cascading. Looks redder is grown in the sun and more to the orange side when in more shade. We like this tree a lot.


The catering business is Gone. A 500 Japanese plant nursery has taken its place. Same address Elizaville Road in Lebanon. All are in pots ready to plant. Give us a call or just come over and check them out. We're here Fri., Sat., and Sunday or by appointment. New photos coming soon



Best known for its intense fall color - fiery crimson. It is said to look like a burning bush. It is one of the oldest Japanese maples listed in catalogs. Its country of origin is Japan 1882. 'Osakazuki ' has rather large leaves and for most of the growing season are green in color. As with most summer green Japanese maples the leaves do not burn easily and it can stand full sun, but prefers morning sun and afternoon shade. It is winter hardy in the midwest, but some protection from winter wind is suggested. This tree grows quickly for first few years usually reaching a 7-10 feet in 10 years and can reach 25-26 ft. It is an upright tree form that forms a round top as it ages. Since the leaves sometimes "cup" at the base thus the name "saki-cup-like-leaf or 'Osakazuki' This is outstanding in fall especially when given a backdrop. of green or yellow


Japanese maples are easy to grow here in the mid-west if given some shade and water. They are native to Japan, China and Korea.

Ideally Japanese Maples need

Morning Sun and afternoon shade or dappled all day sun
Protection from strong Wind
Well-drained soil consistently moist soil - neither too wet or too dry
Protection from late Spring frosts especially when young

They adapt to a wide range of soils and light. Green leaf maples handle all day sun better than the red varieties. The leaf color is affected by the amount of sun, moisture, and the nutrients in the soil. The same varieties may be different colors even when nearby when there are differences in any of these things.

Japanese maples have a shallow root system so they coexist with many other plants or ground covers in the garden. All Japanese Maples can be container grown. It is best to re-pot every two years to give them fresh well-drained potting soil.

Each Japanese Maple displays such a unique beauty, it would be hard to be dissatisfied.
