 Acer palmatum 'Kotohime' This is one of the first cultivars I grafted around mid-January. It's always exciting to see them grow!

 Acer palmatum 'Kiyohime' These were grafted by the old timer (Keith Johansson). Keith was nice enough to come help graft several days this year. It was nice having some company in the greenhouse!

 Acer palmatum dissectum 'Viridis' This is always a fun one to watch leaf out. One of the favorite lace leaf varieties.
