Botann, is that your personal garden? The photos and garden are absolutely incredible! I don't think my jaw will be scraped off the floor for quite some time. That is an amazing collection of jap maples.
WOW!!!!! Thank you so much for sharing those photos.

The maples are almost entirely ones I raised from seed.
a lot cheaper than purchased named varieties. I am not a collector, nor do I sell them. They are selected primarily for Fall color. The rest are composted.

Spectacular! That is better than many calender pictures I've seen! You are so lucky to garden in that climate. Thanks for sharing!

First of all, that is so beautiful.... my respect. What is the Red ground-cover? I'm sure I can't grow it in Zone 5, but I love the look.

The red 'groundcover' is fallen leaves from the maples. In the winter and spring there is a pond there. It just dried up this summer a few days ago. There is a much larger pond on the other side of the cabin which doesn't dry up. We call the cabin, 'The Nipa Hut'.

Yes. The hedge is made from Japanese Holly, Illex crenata, 'Convexa'. I started them from cuttings about 25 years ago.
