Acer palmatum Hogyoku Seeds
Japanese Maple 'Hogyoku'
Owing to its striking autumn colour of bright pumpkin orange, this Japanese Maple cultivar is often referred to as "Jewel of Fall". This is a great landscape specimen with an upright, compact growing habit, attractive summer green foliage, stunning autumn colours and beautiful pale bark. This variety is hardy -20°Celsius and can grow to a mature height of approximately 4.5 meters. It responds well to pruning and is also suitable for container growing or bonsai culture.
Maples are unrivalled for their autumn foliage colouring and variety of leaf shapes and textures. Maples are a very popular choice for the art of bonsai and many are compact enough for the average garden. Their flowers are green, yellow, orange or red and though individually small, the effect of an entire tree in flower can be striking in several species. Bark is another feature of some maples, although usually smooth grey or greenish, in the group known as the ‘snake bark maples’ it has longitudinal grey or red-brown stripes and in others it is flaky or papery. Most of the approximate 129 species come from East Asia, particularly China, where over 80 species can be found, Japan, with more than 20 species, and the eastern Himalayas. Most species are deciduous, but a few in southern Asia and the Mediterranean region are evergreen. Most maples prefer a cool, moist climate with ample rainfall in spring and summer. A planting position sheltered from strong winds suits them best. For best autumn colour, grow them in a neutral to acid soil. Propagation is generally from seed but grafting is also an option. Seed germination is aided by stratification.
