    The realm of trees is extensive and diverse, yet few types capture the senses as much as a Japanese maple does.

    The Pixie dwarf Japanese maple is a petite yet robust tree that is a marvel of nature, boasting a stunning display of color and form that makes it a standout in any landscape.

    With a compact size and vibrant foliage, what’s not to love?

    • This tree is a compact, upright variety that typically grows to a height and width of 5-6 feet. It has vibrant, changing foliage that ranges from bright red to purple or wine red in the spring and summer and turns to a fiery red or orange in the fall.
    • The Pixie Japanese maple is adaptable to a variety of soil conditions but prefers slightly acidic, well-drained soil. It can tolerate partial shade to full sun, but in hotter climates, some afternoon shade is beneficial.
    • Regular watering, especially in extreme heat, is important for this tree.
    • Pixie is versatile in landscape settings, ideal for small gardens, courtyards, or container planting. Good companion plants include hostas, ferns, and rhododendrons, which all enjoy similar light and soil conditions.
