These Japanese maples are grown from seed, which means they are genetically diverse from their parent. This can provide disease resistance and considerable cost savings, but also means that the trees are not perfect clones and will display some diversity in appearance. If you don't mind a little diversity in your life you should consider this tree, because for a low price you will definitely get the beauty of a Japanese maple.
The mother of these trees is a 40 year old 'bloodgood' Japanese maple, so you can expect deep-red to green-red leaves, a 20 ft. diameter spread, and a 10-15 ft. tall tree. A healthy tree will be chosen at random for you and you will have a unique Japanese maple that will easily rival the clones. A seed grown Japanese maple should be considered an investment. Even though they take time to grow, a mature Japanese maple provides additional property value and timeless beauty.
