Tamukeyama Japanese Maples
My mom bought me a beautiful Tamukeyama JM for my birthday last week. It's my first JM, I have been a fancier for the past few years! Most photos I've seen of these show a mounding type tree. I'm wondering, do they all seem to do this, or can they be pruned so they are still like a tree form, not shrubby looking? Am I making sense? I will include a photo. My tree is about 4 and a half feet tall. (I'm hoping I can remember how to post photos here). I will also attempt to post a photo of about where I'd like to plant it...in front of my house, kind of between the two windows of the front of the house. A centerpiece, right where it deserves to be!
