Orangeola Japanese Maple
$29.97 – $54.97
Orangeola Japanese Maple is one of the fastest growing dissectums, but still does not get very tall due to the fact that it is also one of the most pendulous maples. The lacy foliage begins in spring with orange and red tones, turning to reddish-green in summer before putting on a show of fiery oranges and reds in fall. A beautiful weeping dissectum, Orangeola Japanese Maple is a stunning compliment to weeping green Japanese maples such as Viridis!
- Scientific Name: Acer palmatum dissectum ‘Orangeola’

Japanese Maple Planting/Care Instructions
Before planting, have your soil tested to see what amendments are needed. Click this link to check your frost dates: Frost Dates. Choose the right time of the year to plant according to your zone. When you receive your tree, soak the root ball in water for 20 minutes upon arrival before planting or potting. Gently break up the root ball. This will help the roots of the plant to grow out into the soil. Dig a hole slightly larger than the root ball of your plant. Fill in the hole tightly with soil to avoid any air pockets. Plant your maple with the root flare above the soil line.
Japanese maples planted in the ground generally do not need fertilizer. Container grown maples can use a bit of slow-release fertilizer. However, variegated cultivars should not be fertilized. Be sure to water your plants. In addition, pull weeds out when they appear. They take nutrients from the soil.
Young grafted trees will continue to have new growth on the rootstock for several years. If new buds or branches develop on the rootstock, remove them before they grow larger. If a larger branch develops, use sterile pruners to remove. Prune plants as needed to encourage growth. Always sterilize your pruners. If you have trouble keeping up with your pruners, check out our locally hand-made leather pruner holster here.
Lastly, enjoy your Orangeola Japanese Maple and your time in the garden!

This beautiful little tree arrived in good shape, and was a nice specimen. It's branches were well formed and balance, and Maples N More provided excellent service.

great tree. awesome experience
The service was prompt. The tree arrived in good condition with appropriate instructions on how to plant. They also sent a separate e-mail to ensure that we knew how to unpack it so as not to damage it on receipt. Overall, a very positive experience.
I’ve never met Horace & Lisa, though I’ve had a decent amount of conversation with them. Which leads me to the thoughts that I may not want to ever meet them. Not for any bad reasons, quite the opposite actually; right now, I have a hard time picturing them in a mere human life; I’m quite certain they’re direct relations of the more largely known Keebler Clan, living in a ancient Japanese Maple. I’m not certain if they bake or not but I can vouch for their trees. Both that I’ve received from them (and there will be many more) have been of unparalleled quality at more than fair prices. If you’ve ever purchased a Japanese Maple from another source you’ll know the absolute crap shoot it is in terms of what’s described and what arrives. There is no gamble here. There is no risk. I will confidently presume this carries over to everything they raise. These are kind people and this is plainly evident in their products and how they manage their business.
