Most people love a maple tree, especially in the fall as the tree develops into a firestorm of red, yellow and bronze. As we all are most familiar with the large standard maple trees that fill our landscapes, I would love to introduce gardeners to the Japanese maple tree. Offering graceful forms, vivid foliage colors and sizes from dwarf to full size, this tree will become a favorite in your landscape.

In my own garden, two special "spots" are each home to a Japanese maple tree that draws attention all year long.
