New Maple Leaves

New Maple Leaves

The Japanese Maple is bursting with new leaves.

I love the colors on this tree, which appear both at the beginning and end of the season. I has a nice, slightly weeping, habit and bobs and moves well in the breeze.

Mine has been fairly slow growing, almost a miniature, and doesn't encroach on other plants around it. It seems to do well, even though it is planted very close to a large eucalyptus that towers above it.

I wish I had more space for them in the garden.

I love these plants, too.
I've been tempted to try them from seed, and see what I get.

This place is very tempting!

And then I went and bought some. Viridis and Autopurpurem parents.

Can't wait to see what the seedlings produce!
