Japanese Maples are thought by some to be the most beautiful of all trees.
Their varieties of shape, color, size and leaf style give them a versitality not acheived by many others.
During the summer, many turn lime-green colored or bronze, while others maintain true red or green.
Japanese Maples, botanically speaking, are Acer Palmatum; acer, meaning acrid (the Maple genus); also from a Latin word meaning sharp, referring to the hardness of the maple wood of soldier's spears; and palmatum, meaning shaped like a palm of the hand.
The first thing most people will comment on is their gorgeous color.
Their colors can change with the seasons.
Some selections are variegated year round displaying several seasons worth of color at once.
In fall, the traditional yellows, golds, oranges and scarlets are enhanced by purples and blues.
