Top 3 and a bit Japanese Maples

A must have plant you should have at least 1 Japanese maple somewhere on your property.  These top garden design tips will make your garden the envy of the block.  I promise beyond any reasonable doubt, these pricey gems are worth every penny.

Bloodgood

 

Pick Number 1 – Bloodgood Japanese Maple.    The Acer palmatum ‘Bloodgood’ can grow quite tall to about 18 feet.  The purplish-red leaves hold their color well throughout the summer.  You can’t go wrong with this beauty.

Pick Number 2 – Cutleaf Japanese Maple.  These little beauties come in two colors; red and green.   The finely cut delicate leaf is why I chose the Acer palmatum dissectum ‘Viridis’ to be a top pick.  The color the red leaf turns in the autumn is simply spectacular.  You can prune them to determine character and size so no two are the same.  They’re not quite as hardy as the Bloodgood.

Pick Number 3 – Inaba Shidare Maple.  Take a smaller Bloodgood and combine it with the beautiful Cutleaf and you have the Acer palmatum dissectum ‘Inaba Shidare.  This is one amazing specimen, the fern like leaves are darker than most other Japanese maples.

One more for luck is the Crimson Queen Japanese Maple.  This beautiful mounding speciman is great.  The bright crimson-red, extremely finely cut leaves retains its color well all sumer long.  This expensiveand worthwhile
