Excellent bonsai subject.

Provide enriched, slightly acidic well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established water regularly to maintain evenly moist soil; does not tolerate drought. Mulch to conserve soil moisture. Apply fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.

History

The paperbark maple, like other members of the Acer genus, produces a fruiting structure called a samara, and they dangle from the branches, resembling papery wings. Most of the seed produced by the paperbark maple is sterile and will not produce unwanted seedlings, unlike that of many other maples.
