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 palmatum, Seedling Japanese Maple (working to lower some old, sturdy branches!)
