I bought my Acer Palmatum "osakazuki" from a garden market stall, and was wondering what's the best way to grow it to speed up the process (I understand it is a slow growing plant), as in its current status it looks very thin and spindly, and doesn't appear to be growing correctly, see attached image. The darker image is the place I normally keep the plant under a pergola with protection from most winds. The sunny picture is for clarity.
Does this plant give fertile flowers or seeds?
I searched in the internet and couldn't find many things.
So basicly my question is: Can I get seeds from Osakazuki japanese Maple ?
I have recently bought a two foot shrub and was wondering if it will be ok in a semi sheltered spot. I did not realise that it had to be planted in a sheltered location until i got it home.(I`m new to this gardening business!)
This is a stunning Acer palmatum, with a rounded stocky habit. Young bronze/ green foliage working well in combination with oranges and yellows. Combine with Hakonechola and Fargesia 'Simba' for a compact space and a tropical look. Mine tends to be one of the last to colour in the autumn and when it does it is a hot rod red extravaganza!
