A. japonicum Aka Omote
Aka Omote is an exciting maple! Aka Omote's orbicular leaves emerge red and keep the color throughout much of the spring, the leaves then fade to a dark emerald color. Aka omote leaves will often take on various shades of red when exposed to the sun. Young stems are somewhat shiny due to the coating of oils that the plant produces. Fall color is bright oranges and reds. Like many japonicums, Aka Omote is a strong grower. 10' in five years. Sun/part shade.
Acer negundo violaceum
Acer negundo violaceum has the most amazing flowers of all the maples in our nursery.

Leaves emerge in the Spring with a purplish color - hence the name violaceum. Orange and red colors in the Fall. Grows rapidly to 20+ feet. Hardy to -10°.
Acer ‘White Tigress’
The White Tigress maple is considered to be by some the most striking of the snakebark maples. Bright white striations against a bright green bark is truly a sight. White Tigress is a cultivar that is often described as a hybrid, possibly A. davidii x A. tegmentosum. Some consider it the most heat tolerant of the snakebark maples. Hardy and fast-growing to 25 feet. Sun/ part shade.
Acer macrophyllum Rubrum
Acer macrophyllum Rubrum is a cultivar of the Western or Oregon Maple that is native to the Pacific Northwest. This cultivar is rare in cultivation, but worthy of a spot in your landscape. The leaves of A. macrophyllum Rubrum are a deep reddish color when they emerge in the spring. This color holds for several weeks and then the leaves turn to a reddish brown and finally to the typical deep green of the species. The trees that I offer are the brightest and boldest red selected from a large number of seedlings from the parent plant. The parent plant of the trees that I offer is about 30 feet tall and is a spectacular sight in the spring! Hardy and heat tolerant.
