Very Cool Maples

Ran across some lone soldiers standing proud in the fields just looking for a specimen location to be shown off.  This Acer japonicum 'Green Cascade' is approx 5/6'H x 10/11'W with a 4.25" caliper.  Would make an ideal focal point with its picturesque trunk, solid branching structure & reaching branch tips.

Two Acer palmatum 'Orido Nishiki' are available.  Their sharp edged variegation just keeps getting better the closer you get to the tree.  These are 2.5" caliper & approx. 10/12'H x 5/6'W.  Perfect upright accents.

With one of the most spectacular leaf patterns, Peaches and Cream Japanese Maple is a fine detailed masterpiece.  This specimen is approx. 10/12'H x 10/12'W.  There's only one in this size that we know of right now...

A funky twist on a delicate leafed maple.  These Acer p. d. 'Emerald Lace' have been staked and trained to reach 6/8' heights.  Keep training them to climb or let them weep and thicken out at this height for a nice large, trailing mound.
