In this video, Rebecca and Laurelle introduce 11 new and eye-catching japanese maples including:

Acer palmatum 'Peaches and Cream' – is a lovely little tree with a wicked cool silvery leaves with green veining and pinky orange tips.  The new growth is more pinky peach and the fall colour is a soft pastel gold and orange.  This breathtaking small feature tree grows to about 10 feet and is hardy from zones 5 to 8.  It prefers to be an understory tree in dappled shade and would be an amazing treasure to find in a woodland garden paired with massed blue anemone or Corydalis ‘Blue Panda’.

Acer palmatum 'Coral Pink' – is a diminutive and delicate small tree to 6 feet.  The leaves are speckled white and pink with the new growth a bright pink.  The fall colour is yellow and orange.  Young branches are also bright coral in colour.  An ideal specimen for a glossy black pot dripping with shady annuals.  This little tree is hardy to zone 6 and prefers a morning sun with afternoon shade position.

Acer palmatum 'Iijima Sunago' – is an upright vase shaped tree with bright green bark and deep burgundy leaves turning to a chocolate brown with green speckled leaves in the heat of summer. Sunago means dusted. The fall colour is orange and red. This hard to find selection will get to about 12 feet and form a round top. The effect of the larger chocolate leaves against the bright green bark is superb. It is hardy to zone 5 and prefers a part shade position.

Acer palmatum 'Beni Maiko' – the name means ‘red haired dancing girl’. This smaller tree grows to about 8 feet and has bright scarlet leaves in spring fading to pink and then green in the heat of summer. This tree lights up again in fall with a bright pinkish red. This small tree is hardy to zone 6 and prefers a sun to part shade position.

Acer palmatum 'Shin Deshojo' - Shin means new and this tree is an improved version of the Deshojo Japanese maple. This smaller broad canopied tree has truly spectacular colour changes which range from electric red in spring to a red green in the middle of summer to combinations of yellows, reds and oranges in fall. The branches are a deep burgundy giving this amazing tree further winter interest. It is an excellent choice for container planting and consistantly rates among the top favorites of Japanese maple afficianados. Shin deshojo grows to about 10 feet and prefers sun to dappled shade. It is hardy to zone 6.

Acer palmatum 'Olsens Frosted Strawberry' – The deeply lobed and serrated leaves which curve artfully at the tips start out strawberry red and then slowly turns to a rose pink as spring progresses and then fades to an intricate netted green with white. This is a slow grower with an open spreading habit. It is a brand new introduction with projected hardiness to about zone 6 and eventual height to around 8 feet. Give this delicate new form dappled shade or morning sun to best protect the exquisite colour.

Acer palmatum 'Hefner's Red' -- A sturdy vase shaped form with rich blood red foliage that maintains its colour throughout the summer. Fall colour is fire red. Great smaller anchor tree for a small garden in sun to part shade. It will grow to about 12 feet and is hardy to zone 5.

Acer palmatum 'Crimson Carole' - Is a vigorous bushy upright small tree to 10 feet in height. The leaves are large, serrated and orange burgundy and contrast nicely with the lime green branches. The fall colour is a bright red. This attractive feathery looking Japanese maple would look lovely underplanted with the bold foliage attractive feathery looking Japanese maple would look lovely underplanted with the bold foliage of a gold leaved hosta.

Acer palmatum 'Bihou' - is an outstanding small tree with delicate yellow leaves which become a bright orange and yellow. The bark on the twigs and branches are a sunshine yellow with a yellow orange tone in the winter giving this plant year round interest. This is a smaller tree would look stunning in a large glossy blue container on my deck. It is hardy to zone 6 and prefers part shade.

Acer palmatum 'Ariadne' - Is a lovely smaller spreading and cascading tree to 8 feet in height and almost as wide. Much like ‘Peaches and Cream’ is is a rosier form with colours of dusty pink, yellow, white following the green veining. The spring colour is soft marbled orange, pink and red with the fall colour mirroring the spring but with red margins. It is hardy to zone 6 and the colour is kept best with morning sun or even dappled shade.

Acer palmatum 'Oregon Fern' - is a very delicate textured small green upright Japanese maple with very finely dissected leaves. This one is also excellent for a container specimen and will grow slowly to about 8 feet, somewhat smaller if in a container. It is hardy to zone 5. The fall colour is a deep red and purple. Sun to part shade is best.
