A few new Japanese maples..

firefightergardener(7/8)June 8, 2010

A few photos of newer maples that I am pretty happy to have in my gardens.

Acer shirasawanum 'Auream' - Either a sport or a strangely coloring 'Auream'. Either way, it's wonderful.

Acer palmatum 'Ryu sen'. A pendulous/groundcover type that grows like a weed. This plant, which I am going to train along the creek bed, grew over 4' last year on multiple leaders.

Acer palmatum 'Shirazz', syn. 'Gwen's Rose Delight' and 'Geisha Gone Wild'. Stunning by any name.

Thanks for looking.
