WANTED: Japanese Maple Seeds

equinecpa(4)September 14, 2009

I'd like to try my hand at growing some japanese maples from seeds. Does anyone have any seeds to spare? I'd like to try a couple of the small or dwarf varieties, such as shaina, fireball, boskoop glory and maybe a weeping variety such as red crimson?

I'll happily send SASE or just paypal postage.

Thanks

Carolyn

Ya know, I've never seen seeds on any of my JMs, and I have 9 of em. Have you tried googling it? Cheryl

JM's produce seeds in the fall. The pods are shaped like propellers and spin like little helicopters when they float to the ground.

Many types of JM seeds will not germinate. Weeping type and others have to be propagated from cuttings. Acer Palmatum does germinate, but the tree needs to be mature to produce seeds. I have three JMs started from seeds that are five and six years old and probably will not produce seeds for at least another five years.

You could try posting this on the Maple or Japanese Garden forum exchange.

Carolyn,
Just this evening I received my "Mike McGroarty Gardening Newsletter" and it talked about Japanese Maple tree seeds. See this link for more information (just in case you do find some seeds). Good luck !
