Care information

Origin: Native to Japan, prized for its stunning red foliage and graceful form.

Light: I prefer partial shade to full sun. Place me in a location with filtered sunlight or morning sun and afternoon shade to protect my delicate leaves from scorching.

Watering: Keep my soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water me deeply and thoroughly whenever the top inch of soil feels dry, especially during the growing season. Avoid letting my roots dry out completely.

Soil: Plant me in well-draining, acidic soil with good organic content. A mixture of peat moss, pine bark, and perlite works well to provide good drainage and moisture retention.

Fertilization: Feed me with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer formulated for acid-loving plants in spring before new growth begins. Avoid fertilizing me during the dormant winter months.

Pruning: Prune me to remove any dead, damaged, or crossing branches to maintain my shape and encourage healthy growth. You can also prune me to control my size and enhance my natural form.

Pests/Diseases: I'm relatively pest and disease-resistant, but watch out for common pests like aphids, scales, and caterpillars. Treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.
