Japanese maples make quite a statement in the landscape. There are hundreds of named cultivars available. You can find them in just about any color from deep red foliage to bright green, creamy white, yellow, pink or orange.
Almost any variety will have spectacular fall color along with an amazing architectural branching structure. Many varieties have colorful leaves throughout the season. Another benefit to these maples is they can tolerate some shade—not deep shade, but dappled light.
