When do Jap. Maples go to seed?

15 years ago

Just curious as to when Japanese maples typically go to seed? I'm planning on starting my own trees for future use (We plan on building in a couple years), so I am trying to start my landscaping plan. I figure to keep costs down, I'd start the trees that I want now, and when we are done building, I have my own trees ready to plant (saving the cost of buying established trees then).

I don't have a Japanese maple, but I have a good friend that a beautiful old one about 8 feet tall who promised me all the seeds I want. The problem is neither of us know exactly when to expect the seeds. I know that I won't necessarily get the same tree, but I figure If I start a lot of seeds, I can pick the best trees of the bunch.
