Couple things you should know about a tree like this.
- A Laceleaf Weeping Japanese maple this size has a retail value of around $2,000. Seriously.
- In Our Members Area you can buy rare Japanese maples like this and so many other varieties for as little as $12 or $15. Small ones of course, but still amazing deals.
There’s a really interesting story behind this tree. Years ago I gave this tree to my next door neighbor. It was a little, scrawny looking thing with but a handful of leaves. I told her that I wasn’t sure that it would survive.
Look at it now. Last summer Millie celebrated her 90th birthday and a ton of people stopped by to wish her well. As I was leaving I gave her a big hug and said; “Give me a hug before I get all sweaty digging up that Japanese maple I gave you.” She told me to keep my hands off of her Japanese maple!
Of course she just loves this tree. It truly is a beauty!
Most Japanese maples do well in zones 5 through 8. There are some varieties that do well in warmer zones and some might survive in zone 4. It just depends. A couple of years ago we were down to minus 22 F. here in northern Ohio and this tree did just fine.
