Trident Maples are some of the most popular bonsai. Anyone can take care of this hardy plant. This small tree offers a nice trunk movement which will only look nicer as the tree gets older. You can be as creative as you want to be with these trees since they handle pruning, defoliating and wiring very well. 

These trees can be distinguished by their dark green leaves that turn red and fluorescent orange in Autumn. The Trident Maple has three-lobed leaves as opposed to the five-lobed leaves of the similar tree, Japanese Maple.


More about the bonsai:

Full sun to part shade Trident Maples are very hardy. Given the size of the pot we recommend placing it in a sheltered location from extreme heat. In Summer it will require watering twice a day due to the size of its pot. They can be brought inside in Winter and Autumn to a location that gets great amount of natural light. For optimum vigor it's best to place it outside in Spring and Summer.
