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.
A great, dark, purple-red. This one is tucked in under my burning bushes and has been in the ground for 4 or 5 years. It suffered from rabbit damage a couple of winters, but has done well with protection the past two years.
