Japanese Maple

A lovely accent tree. Prized for its changing foliage from orange-yellow to green and back to yellow in autumn. Red-coral colored bark is particularly striking in winter. Makes a magnificent specimen or a perfect small landscape tree for entrances or patios. Attractive fall color extends the season. Virtually maintenance-free.
