Japanese Maples for Bonsai

Showing all 35 results

Japanese maples make wonderful plants for Bonsai. Maples grow well in containers and they tend to reduce their size in containers very nicely. The maples in this section are chosen for bonsai because they have grafts that are low and/or very clean (ie. very little graft scar). They typically have good low branching. In some cases these maples are grown without grafting (seedlings) so there is no graft scar at all.

Many of the maples in this section are the actual plants that are for sale. Please check back often as our inventory and selection will be increasing.
