Japanes maples are a common favourite with bonsai growers. Despite their delicate appearance they are quite hardy and respond well to pruning techniques and cultivation in containers . In a few seasons a delicate and graceful branch structure can be developed allowing the foliage mass to give the impression of a stately oak growing in the grounds of a country estate.
