Japanese maple


Is it possible to graft Japanese maple on another maple root stock to increase hardiness and cold tolerance?


Most commercially produced Japanese Maples are grafted onto a hardier root stock so the answer to your questions is a ‘yes’.

If you google ‘Japanese Maple Grafting’, there are many good resources available to show you how to go about doing this.

I’m attaching a link below to a Toronto Master Gardeners Growing Guide for you to read about Japanese Maples and their care.
