THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH GARDEN DESIGN OR HARD WORK



These babies do all this on their own



IMHO there isn't a more note worthy tree for a garden. If you have a shady to semi-shady patio, plant one of these in a beautiful planter and situate it next to your favorite reading or resting spot and enjoy the simple beauty.


The top two are:


Acer palmatum 'Peaches and Cream" The next one was also sold to me as the same cultivar. The differences in leaf appearance are pretty drastic.



The next one is Acer palmatum

"Higasa yama'


If you remember I posted a more mature leaf picture awhile back and it was dark green with a white margin. This will continue to change as it matures.



The next green leaf one is Acer palmatum

'Mikawa yatsabusa' which believe to be of one the most special Japanese Maples.

















The red leafed one is Acer palmatum 'Purple Ghost'


And last but not least Acer japonicum 'Otaki'
