JUNE 2012


All Japanese Maples are loosely placed in one of the following groups.  The groups are defined by leaf shape, that is the preponderance of leaves of one shape on an adult plant and in the case of the Dwarf group they are defined by the ultimate height of the plant.

AMOENUM GROUP - Leaf lobes shallowly to moderately divided up to two-thirds of the to the leaf base.

PALMATUM GROUP - Leaf lobes moderately to deeply divided, two-thirds to three-quarters of the way to the to the leaf base.

MATSUMURAE GROUP - Leaf lobes very deeply divided, more than three-quarters of the way to the leaf base.

LINEARILOBUM GROUP - Leaf lobes narrow, strap-like, divided to the leaf base.

DISSECTUM GROUP - Leaf lobes very deeply divided and deeply dissected into sub-lobes.

DWARF GROUP - Cultivars whose mature height does not usually exceed 6'.

OTHER GROUP - Cultivars that cannot be placed in any of the above groups.

The summer leaf color will be noted after the group designation.


Not enough can be said about the value of the Japanese Maple to modern landscape design. As we move towards smaller gardens and become more refined and discriminating in our choice of plants, it is only natural to "discover" the centuries old mainstay of the oriental garden. Beautiful in so many ways, and in so many seasons! Acer palmatum and its cultivars are hardy to -20°F, (USDA Zone 5). They perform fully and with ease through Zone 8. For Zones 9 and above, you may not experience the dramatic fall foliage coloration, but with proper cultivation and care, the trees can be grown with great success still providing their character to your landscape. Please note: In areas with prolonged hot spells, some afternoon shade is advisable.

50266 Acer palmatum ‘Herbstfeuer’ — 10-15’, PALMATUM, green . The name is of German derivation and translated, means "autumn fire," so I bet you can guess what the fall color is!

The small 5 lobed palmate style leaves are nicely textured and held on the stems each in its own place. The yellow fall color is accented by red veins. We believe it will be smaller in stature than ‘Kurui jishi’. A good find. 3-4’ $59.95
