Will I get different types of Japanese Maples from seeds?
I have a Japanese Maple that is at least 30+ years old (I have no idea what kind, it came with my house) that is medium green, sort of star shaped leaves (not fine/deeply cut) and the tree is about 20' high by 30' wide.
This year it has a bumper crop of babies and I was noticing that there are differences in the colors of the leaves on some of them. If I were to allow some seedlings to grow, would they keep their current coloration or is it a temporary thing? (some have red and gold colors along with the green) Is there any chance of getting a "cool" new variety from any of these babies? They are all the same shaped leaf as the parent plant.
