Care and Planting tips for your Rhode Island Red Dwarf maple:
Make sure you plant your Rhode Island Red with good drainage. Proper drainage techniques include planting the tree in a raised bed, planting on a slope, and creating a planting mound 4 to 6 inches above the existing grade. Japanese Maples require moist, well drained soil. Amend the soil with organic material. We recommend adding an organic mulch over the planting area. Rhode Island Red is suited for sun and part sun conditions.
