Japanese maple is a common name that usually covers Acer palmatum. These eye-catching maples have 2 seasons of amazing foliage color (in the leaf emergence in the spring and color change in the fall). They also have lots of differences in the leaf patterns such as cut leaf vs matsumurae. With all these choices it allows the homeowner to have multiple maples types without having multiple maples of the color/form. Here at garden treasures we search far and wide to provide you with some of the most amazing Japanese maples you can find on the market. We also do our own grafting under the watchful eye of the world renown plantsman Pat McCracken. Pat uses his years of grafting knowledge to ensure the graft is perfect. In fact most of the time it’s almost impossible to see the graft union.
