JAPANESE MAPLES

A Modest Beginning

During the 1950s Boyd Nursery Company began growing Japanese Maple seedlings in earnest for ornamental landscaping. By the 1970s, the growing consumer demand of Japanese Maple cultivars had resulted in annual propagation efforts by company staff. In 1991, the rising popularity of the tree convinced Campbell Boyd (current owner) to order significant quantities of various cultivars for stock propagation. Over the course of the next decade, Campbell Boyd worked to improve inefficient and outmoded propagation techniques through systematic trial and error. Today, Boyd Nursery Company is proud to offer the highest quality Japanese Maples on the market. Produced in our one-of-a-kind greenhouse, Boyd Nursery Company Japanese Maples are grown on their own root stock, resulting in more reliable growth and coloration. Listed below is our most current availability list for Japanese Maple cultivars as they become available. We are in Tennessee, located halfway between Nashville and Chattanooga and just only 45 minutes from Murfreesboro. We have ‘Bloodgood’, ‘Burgundy Lace’, ‘Emperor One’, ‘Sango Kaku’ and ‘Orido Nishiki’ balled and burlapped. We have trees in 3 inch and 4 inch caliper.

Acer palmatum ‘Bloodgood’

The Bloodgood cultivar is one of the most hardy Japanese Maples. With red/purple foliage coloration capable of withstanding full sun conditions, it is an ideal Japanese Maple for specimen landscaping. Available in both tree and multi-stemmed clump forms, the cultivar is striking with its scarlet fall coloration. Capable of reaching 15-20 feet in height and width, Bloodgood Japanese Maples have a slow to moderate growth rate, and are typically disease and insect free.

Acer palmatum ‘Emperor One’

Acer palmatum ‘Sango Kaku’

The Sango Kaku Japanese Maple (also called Senkaki, Sango-Kaku, and Sangokaku) is a common cultivar often praised for its brilliant coral fall and winter color of the young stems. New leaves are typically reddish tinged, becoming light green in summer. During the fall, leaves turn a striking yellow gold with light red overtones. This cultivar makes an excellent specimen tree and will grow 20 to 25 feet high and 18 to 22 feet wide upon maturity. Growth rate is slow to moderate.

Acer palmatum ‘Burgandy Lace’

Burgandy Lace Japanese Maples are well-known for their attractive leaves and form. Reddish purple when grown in partial shade and purple-bronze in full sun, Burgandy Lace leaves have sinuses that cut almost to the point of lobe attachment, making for an eyelash-lace appearance. Burgandy Lace Japanese Maples make excellent corner foundation trees with their rounded slow-spreading crown and bush-like branching. The cultivar also offers rich red fall color and a slower growth rate.
