Maple Tree’s Branches Inside

P1010659

I came home today from our spring break trip, and look what was waiting for me! Maple leaves!

P1010660-1

I pruned my Japanese maples recently and brought several branches inside. I put them into a vase and went to Nevada and Arizona for a week.

Less than ten days after pruning, green fresh leaves have appeared. It’s early for the maple trees to green up yet, but warmth and water made a trick with their branches inside.

Lovely leaves, aren’t they?

  8. You know you are very clever putting water in the vase. I pruned my Coral bark maple and brought some of the branches in and placed them in a white Kaiser porcelain vase (looked great!) I never even thought of trying to force them to bud and leaf out. Next year!!

  11. Nice Tatyana! I knew we could do this with flowering trees but the maples look equally spring-like. And Lord knows we need all the spring we can get. :)

  15. Gorgeous! I have never thought of bringing in maple branches - I usually force flowering shrub branches, but these leaves are just as beautiful as flowers I think. I love Japanese maple trees and am fascinated by their delicate and unique leaves. Enjoy!

  23. I did this with the branches off the redbud that had to come down because it split. They were covered with flowers.
