Buy Japanese Maples North Carolina


Buy Japanese Maples in North Carolina. Welcome to the premier place to buy Japanese maples nursery in the Carolinas. For the South, we are as local as you get with Japanese maples. We not only graft our Japanese maples locally in North Carolina, but we also grow our own rootstock. Over 50 years ago our grandmother planted Japanese maples in East Flat Rock, NC fairly close to where our nursery is today. In the fall we collect seeds from these Japanese maples that have been through the full gambit of southern weather. These Japanese maples have great genetics for thriving and doing well in the South as they have been through the extreme colds, freezes, droughts, and heat spikes we have experience since the late 1950's. These seedlings are what we use as the rootstock (or simply the roots) of each of our grafted Japanese maples. We feel this gives us and advantage locally here in South as our trees are well acclimated and adapted to our climate. Purchase the right Japanese for your garden here.

These beautiful Japanese maples are at our nursery. This was taken in June of 2013 when our friends from "In The Garden With Bryce Lane" from UNC TV were filming a special on "Magnificent Maples" here at our nursery. You can click on the link to see the episode online.

Here in North Carolina we produce the largest selection of Japanese maples in the United States. There is no need to go anywhere other than right here on the East Coast. We graft and propagate over 1000 unique and different selections of Japanese maples. We are a small family nursery owned and operated by two brothers who enjoy providing exceptional Japanese maples that do well here in the Carolina's, especially the rare and hard-to-find varieties. We are passionate about what we do. We love sharing our enthusiasm and knowledge with our customers.
