Acer longipes 'Gold Coin'

A new maple for me this spring. Another plant from sent from Canada. This one arrived looking pretty sad. Dry and dropping leaves. A cool late spring may have eased it's transition to Iowa because it is pushing out new growth now.

Shirasawanum 'Aureum' before the ravages of summer. Red in the veins and on the margins. Perfect!
