Japanese maple trees are grafted in nurseries as a form of vegetative reproduction.
This is a way of cloning an identical tree. By using 'carpentry' we carefully insert a branch (also known as a scion) of a named variety we want to propagate into an actively growing Japanese maple tree (rootstock). We normally use a standard green leaf tree for rootstock.
In the picture you can see the union between the scion and the rootstock as they have grown together.
Newly grafted trees may range from 9" tall up to 20" tall depending on where we make the graft. Trees also vary in height depending on whether the tree is a dwarf, intermediate or full sized variety and how old it is.
Each year we grow on hundreds of new grafted trees.
There are literally several hundred different named cultivars (varieties) of named Japanese maple trees. Here's a picture of one of our most popular variegated trees - Oridono nishiki.
We have grafted trees in red, green and variegated leaf forms. We also have both regular leaf and dissected or laceleaf varieties.
Note: Popular varieties often sell out each season. Order early to avoid disappointment.
