Japanese Maples in Spring

Murasaki Kiyohime - a great dwarf JM for a shady spot.

Katsura - has almost neon green spring colors.

O Isami - Acer Japonicum

Red Dragon - a slow growing lace leaf maple.

Koto No Ito - a beautiful, delicate-looking tree.

Ryusen - a unique tree that can be trained to act like a ground cover.

Orangeola - I had one of these at my old house but had to leave it behind.
I couldn't resist replacing it when I saw this one at the nursery the other day.  

Viridis - a weeping lace leaf maple that should eventually be wider than it is tall. 


  1. I officially hate Zone 5.
    That is all.


  2. I adore these delicate beautiful trees and what a treat to see them as your first commenter has intimated...we cannot really grow them here even though I tried.

  3. Chad, It's always a treat to see your Japanese maples -- especially since, like Donna, I garden in a climate where most of these are not cold hardy. They are such beautiful plants. -Jean
