I have a rather large Japanese maple in my backyard and on a walk through the woods, found several youngsters. Most look just like the Mother tree, which is green but I also found several saplings that were red Japanese maples and we dont have any of those. Is this a genetic thing?

Okie Doke. When you come back, please tell me the best way to dig up and replant the little ones. They are in almost full shade in the wooded part of the property and I want to move them where they can get more sun and where I can see them : )

collect seeds? From the tree? Do they come in those whirly things attached to the tree? They are all over my huge green japanese maple.

yes, they are the little whirly things.

I'd love to try to start some from seeds.

I've done other maples but no Japanese!

I've already seen seeds on some of the Japanese maples here. Someone told me they seed in the fall though.

Here's a picture of the "momma" tree and below it is the red one. There are 10-20 small red ones all around the big tree area (some older then others) Sorry it's blurry but it is windy in the woods!

I think most ripen in the fall, but maybe some go earlier.
