Commonly Asked Questions

Will I get Autumn colour change with Shaina Standards?

The leaves on Shaina maples will change from maroon/burgundy foliage, to a crimson tone for Autumn. Because the leaves of this maple are dark, the Autumn transformation is more subtle than with a green tones Japanese Maple. Please note colour change can differ year to year, it will also be depend on the health of your plant and the plants.


Are Shaina Japanese Maples suitable for planter pots?

Yes they are, be sure you are selecting a pot with plenty of room for the plant to grow, you may find in a few years time the pot size needs to be increased. The compact size of a Shaina Standards make them especially ideal for planter pots. The “Stem” of the plant will remain the same size, while the “Head” of the plant will continue to grow.  Please note that like with all plants, they will grow quicker in the ground than they would in a pot, however if you have a small garden, courtyard, paved area or are in a rental property, this can be a good thing, depending on your needs. Please make sure you use a quality soil in your pot, slow release fertalizer and keep up the watering, as pots dry out more quicky than ground planting.


Do I need to prune my Japanese Maple?

No need to prune your maple, just sit back and enjoy the glorious natural form of your Japanese Maple. Pruning can be effective if you are wanting to open up your maple into a specific canopy shape, otherwise its best left alone to mother nature.
