    I have always used 10 years of age as a rule of thumb for the beginning of seed bearing in
    Japanese maples. The Dutch are brilliant at Japanese maples and you have perhaps the best
    maple nursery in the West in esveld nursery.

    The age of the of the plant that supplied the scion wood seems most important. This year several one year grafts flowered unabashedly around here.
