Fall color over the driveway

botann(z8 SEof Seattle)November 2, 2006

I took this picture a few days ago of the Japanese Maples I raised from seed and planted over 25 years ago. Being seedlings, they have no name. On the other hand, being seedlings I had a lot to choose from when it came time to select the ones I wanted. Selection was always done in the Fall when the color was best.

Those are just gorgeous. My Japanese maple hasn't begun to turn yet. It's usually a beautiful red too. I also have tons of JM seedlings, so I'm going to watch them for color and add some more to my garden. :)
Thanks for sharing that great photo.

Your maples are beautiful ! I snook around and took a peek thru all your photo albums while looking at your maple link,and might I say..I AM IN LOVE !!!! Your garden landscape is to die for ! All that color from your selections of evergreens and not hardly a bloom in sight, so you'll have that view 365 days a year !! All your blooming plants are just the icing on the cake. My hat's off to you.Your garden has matured beautifully. It gives us all hope !!

Jan, that is absolutely beautiful! Conifers and maples make a good combination, don't they? I'm going to concentrate more on dwarf conifers in the future. I have raised hundreds of Japanese maples from seed and since I don't sell any, or collect them by name, the name is not important. What's important is that it looks good in my garden.
I notice you have waterlilies in your pond. Mine goes almost dry in the summer so I can't have them unless I put a liner in. Since my pond is so big, that's not possible in my budget unless maybe I just line part of it.
