Nice shots.

The first un-named one with the yellow-red leaves might be Katsura.

The red linearlobum with missing tag might be Atrolinear or Beni otake.

Your photo's are great. I love those new leaves. I am just starting out so my maples are very small. Here are a couple.

I'm jealous of all those seedlings. They are so beautiful. It's hard to find a Japanese maple for sale where I live. (Louisville) You can find some standard ones at the big box stores, but they have been treated badly.

Lainey,

Why don't you order by mail? That's what most of us do. I just ordered 9 trees (new grafts) from World Plants and they're only $15 a piece. There are several nice mail order nurseries that specialize in Japanese Maples.

I second the recommendation for ordering by mail. I was skeptical before I tried it, but now buy most of my maples and many perennials that way. You can find virtually any variety of JM through on-line nurseries, generally at prices lower than local nurseries. I've never bought anything larger than 1-gallon plants, so I'm not sure how it works for larger plants, but it is certainly the way to go for smaller plants. Like K4, I usually buy newly grafted maples and grow them in pots until they are large enough to set out in the yard, although some of the dwarf varieties I intend to grow in containers indefinitely.

I second that thought. I have been pleased with 90% of what I have gotten online. The only one I wouldn't want to buy online is if I wanted a large showpiece dissectum for the front lawn such as a mature Crimson Queen. I prefer low grafts in crimson queen and also a semi-dense spread and foliage which you may or may not get online. Seldom can you see a picture of the exact plant you are getting. I just got a A.J.acontitifolium, A.P's Garnet, Orange Dream, Germaine's Gyration, Mikawa Yatsubusa, Koto No Ito all online and I am impressed by most of them. You can get 1 year grafts from 10-15 bucks and 2 years for 20 or so. I would always advise people to get the biggest they can afford for a showpiece yet I love to watch the tiny ones develop and if you should lose one, no big loss. They go through so much change over the years.
