Acer japonicum 'Ruby'A small, upright Full Moon maple. Its dramatic foliage emerges black-red then brightens in late spring, turns bronze-green in the summer to give the most amazing display of orange, red and purple hues in autumn.
Acer japonicum 'Vitofolium'A beautiful upright variety with large grape-like, deep green leaves that turn magnificent golds with tones of crimson and scarlet, changing to a vivid scarlet before they drop.
Acer palmatum 'Bloodgood'An upright, domed headed, variety with the best purple leaf colour. Holds colour well. The red leaves turn bright crimson and blood-red in autumn. Each leaf bears 5-7 deeply cut lobes. When the leaves fall, the blackish-red bark produces winter interest.
Acer palmatum 'Enkan'A dwarf, red variety with strap-like leaves. It is very similar to 'Red Pygmy' but holds its deep wine colour even better. It is the darkest of the linearilobums. It bears medium-sized, five-lobed, deeply divided leaves. Each leaf has a bluntly pointed or rounded tip. The purple-red leaf stalks are quite short.
Acer palmatum 'Ichigyoji'Acer palmatum 'Ichigyoji' is almost identical to 'Osakazuki' except for the autumn colour which is an intense brilliant yellow or orange-yellow, while Osakazuki is crimson. 'Ichigyoji' stands out from other maples because of its large leaves and flamboyant colour. During summer the leaves are green. Each leaf has seven broadly ovate lobes which taper to a sharply pointed tip.
Acer palmatum 'Koto-no-ito'Koto no ito translates to 'Golden old Harp'. A small, slow-growing, semi-dwarf tree with very fine leaves that emerge with crimson tones before turning to bright green. The elegant leaves warm up to vibrant orange-yellow in the autumn. Leaves are carried on short red stalks. The dark green bark adds a nice touch of colour to the winter garden.
Acer palmatum 'Linearilobum'A unique cultivar with long deeply divided fine bamboo-like leaves. The foliage is deep green turning lovely bright yellow in the autumn. It is a medium-size compact tree. A perfect plant for a small garden.
Acer palmatum 'Orange dream'This Acer has a beautiful golden yellow-orange spring growth turning a lime green for the summer and again turning a stunning orange-gold in the autumn. A vibrant Acer with masses of tiny, red, spring flowers contrasting beautifully against beautiful orange-green leaves.
Acer palmatum 'Osakazuki'This famous cultivar is best known for its intense autumn colours. Its crimson foliage is thought to be the most intense of all maples. At dusk, the tree appears to glow.
Acer palmatum 'Red pygmy'An excellent, red cultivar from the Netherlands. Bears large red or red-maroon leaves with seven strap-like lobes. They have an almost lace-like appearance. The colour holds well until late summer when it deepens to a more purple tone. In direct sun it bronzes with green undertones. Young shoots are red. Foliage turns vibrant orange in autumn.
Acer palmatum 'Shishigashira'A compact variety with the close-packed arrangement of the leaves. The bright green foliage is quite crinkled. The autumn colour is a beautiful combination of gold with rose and crimson tones.
