Hello,

We got 2 Japanese Maples earlier this year when we upgraded our backyard from a dirt lot. They’ve had a rough transition. I’m hoping other members on here can help me ID them so that I can make sure their needs are met.

Both are in morning and late afternoon sunlight, fed on a drip system. One green, one green/red. Both have non-serrated leaves. Photos attached.

Thanks in advance!

Acer palmatum?


From the wiki:

3 subspecies are recognized.
  • Acer palmatum subsp. palmatum. Leaves small, 4–7 cm (1 1⁄2–2 3⁄4 in) wide, with five or seven lobes and double-serrate margins; seed wings 10–15 mm (3⁄8–5⁄8 in). Lower altitudes throughout central and southern Japan (not Hokkaido).
  • Acer palmatum subsp. amoenum (Carrière) H.Hara. Leaves larger, 6–12 cm (2 1⁄4–4 3⁄4 in) wide, with seven or nine lobes and single-serrate margins; seed wings 20–25 mm (3⁄4–1 in). Higher altitudes throughout Japan and South Korea.
  • Acer palmatum subsp. matsumurae Koidz. Leaves larger, 6–12 cm (2 1⁄4–4 3⁄4 in) wide, with seven (rarely five or nine) lobes and double-serrate margins; seed wings 15–25 mm (5⁄8–1 in). Higher altitudes throughout Japan.
