Plant of the Week

Bailey compact

BaileyCompactAmurMapleBaileys compact has dark green foliage that forms early in spring, changes in fall to a crimson color resembling Japanese maple leaves, and loses its leaves only in extremely bitter winters. An Arizona-sun-hardy shrub, it grows to 10 feet tall with an equal spread. It thrives in drought hardy landscapes that need a showy plant to grow under power lines, between boulders, along a driveway, or as a hedge.

The Bailey Comapct is a low, low maintenance shrub that grows best in full sun and isn’t intimidated by mountain winds. As it may ‘bleed’ sap if pruned in late winter or early spring, it prefers a light pruning in summer after the leaves have developed fully. This variety has no significant negative characteristics and naturalizes easily.
