Lovely Japanese Maple…

Apr 9, 2009

Just thought I'd post a closer shot of the new Japanese Maple I planted the other day. It's called 'Oshi Beni'. What lovely color...This variety can grow up to 20-25 feet, although I expect this one to max out about about 20...but that's a long way off. I find this variety to be much prettier than the more commonly planted 'Bloodgood', but it does get a bit larger. So pretty when the light shines through the leaves...

That is a very pretty Maple. I have a Crimson King Maple that I love. In fact I need to go to where we lived when we first met and got married and take a picture of the first one I had - it’s huge now.  When we moved I had to have another one so it’s not near as big.  Enjoy yours as much as I have mine (both of them).

It is a beauty! I hope it does well for you. They look good in my neck of the woods for the first month or two and then they get brown tips from the alkaline water. That doesn’t stop nurseries from selling them or people from buying them, including myself.

I have always loved these Japanese maples. The color they turn is absolutely gorgeous. Though I think they are probably more common outside of Japan now days.
