Acer palmatum

Japanese Maple

Japanese maples are small decorative trees with beautiful red or green leaves that are of a deeply dissected star shape. The brilliant red foliage, graceful small shape, and unusual leaves make it a highly desired feature in Japanese and formal gardens. Though Japanese maples can grow large enough to provide shade, they are very slow to mature and are most often seen as smaller trees in landscape beds.
