Acer palmatum includes a diverse and beautiful group of
trees. They vary considerably in leaf shape, foliage colors
and growth habit. Most often associated with the Acer
palmatum dissectum or “weeping laceleaf” variety,
this family includes hundreds of upright, medium to tall
cultivars. While seemingly delicate, this graceful tree
is known to be hardy and durable, particularly in our
NW climate. Seldom damaged by pest or disease it is a
tree for all gardens. Whether mingling amongst the perennials
or displayed as a mounded specimen – the Japanese
maple family will enchant you with its colorful seasonal
changes and undisputed elegance.
Drama best describes the hundreds of varieties of shapes,
textures and colors presented for year-round visual interest
and impact. Easy to maintain, these beauties are slow-growing
and thrive in a well-drained, sunny position. As an evergreen
architectural backbone in the garden, dwarf conifers can
mature at miniature 18” or up to commanding 20’
– and everything in between. Bring a year-round look
to your garden and get some drama in your life!
