North Wind® Japanese Maple

If you've thought you couldn't grow a Japanese maple in your Northern garden, now you can. A hybrid cross between a Japanese maple and a Korean species, North Wind exhibits increased durability and outstanding winter hardiness, even up in Zone 4 areas of the country. Quickly growing to 20' in height with a 15' spread, it makes an imposing specimen tree in the landscape. Finely serrated foliage appears in vibrant shades of red in spring, changing to delicate light green in midsummer, with the real color show coming in autumn when leaves turn to rich orange-red. Makes an excellent substitute for traditional Japanese maples in colder climates. Easy to grow in moist, humus-enriched soil with good drainage. Good for coastal regions due to its tolerance to salt. Acer x pseudosieboldianum 'North Wind®' ('IsINW')
