I purchased a one-gallon Acer japonicum Oregon Fern in the Spring of 2011. It has since been in a small cedar pot. It spent last year under a conifer, where it received full morning sun, and then dappled shade from midday onward.

It is very healthy and has grown about three inches / 7-8 centimeters taller and 8-10 inches / 20-25 centimeters wider. I will repot it this spring, when I find the right ceramic pot for it.

Like other Acer japonicums, it has a nice layered look to the branches and leaves.
