Japanese Maple New Growth

Japanese Maple New Growth

Last Spring I decide to do a little series on emerging new growth on a collection of Japanese Maples at work. The pictures came out okay with this being the best one. Japanese Maples go through a lot of changes during the season. If you can catch the foliage just coming out that is often one of it’s most beautiful times. This particular tree (sorry, I forget what cultivar) turns green a little later. I often use green Japanese Maples in shady areas and as long as it gets some light they do well there.

I see someone wanted to see some more art photos. I will post a couple of more. Next weekend I am going to MOMA in Manhattan and see if I can get a few more snaps.

Beautiful JM. Do you know the name of it? I have probably more than 30 different cultivars although some are still very tiny grafted ones. There are more than 400 different trees so it's unfortunately easy to become a collector money being the only impediment;) I can hear my wife now screaming not another one!

Great color saturation in the photos of the paintings and zebra.
