Every year they are probably lovely, though I really noticed the Japanese Maples this weekend. They were almost hard to look at they are so bright. The narrow-leafed, bush-shaped one are Thread-leaf Japanese Maples. They come in green and red leafed varieties. The green-leafed ones are pictured here…and are probably my favorite. Japanese maples also have lovely spring leafs as they emerge….almost as if they are in bloom.
Below is a view of the fun listing I have in Glendale on Bismark. You feel like you are in the woods…right off Berry Rd. Plus click this LINK to see the cool tree houses.
The picture below is looking at the annex of my mother's Bernoudy in Ladue. Bernoudy loved to use Japanese Maples in his landscapes.
