Grafting for this year has finally been completed. Now the fun begins!
Maples make wonderful plants in the landscape, there's no doubt about that. What happens when you run out of room to plant trees at your house? For me, growing Maples as bonsai provided the perfect solution! Over the past 10 years these trees have become a large part of my life. Below are several trees from my personal collection.
Acer palmatum, 'Coonara Pygmy' (this little tree is about 4'' tall)
Acer palmatum, Seedling Japanese Maple

Acer griseum, The Paperbark Maple, has been the first tree to show beautiful Fall color this year at the nursery. This particular tree is planted at the entrance to Metro Maples, and has not been irrigated all year. The Paperbark is a very durable tree in our climate, and as the pictures show, puts on a great show this time of year!
I'm glad you found this.
