    I took these at work the other day. Japanese Maples are among my favorite trees. There are so many variations.

    Nice series! I only recently noticed this tree in, well, a cemetery. It's a beautiful tree, and it's interesting to see in your post the different types.

    I love the vivid colors in the first shot. Is there a type of Japanese Maple that stays red all year long? I've always wanted one but figured they were too delicate to grow out here. (Deserty)

    Thank you both for the comments. Alex06, I don't think these trees would do well in the desert, unless you wanted to water a lot. I have seen them growing in LA and San Diego, near the coast.
