I am fairly new to the Japanese Maple craze but I am now completely addicted. I finished building our new home 2 years ago and to save money, I did all the landscaping. I started with 5 JM because they are popular and are good for the landscape. Not really knowing what I was doing or how I would later be affected, I did not pay attention to what I had purchased. Now, I am much more careful and have increased my collection to 12 JM. I have identified all but one of the original 5. I have attached some pictures as I could not figure out how to post them on the website. I have a book by J.D. Vertrees & think that it might possibly be iijima sunago but I am not sure. It has 5 different colors of leaves right now (end of May). The bark of the tree is green w/ white, vertical lines running almost the entire length up (also visible in the pictures). All the shoots are also green. I do appologize for the size of the pics. Any help that could shed some light on this cultivar would be greatly appreciated. It is mostly due to this website that I have expanded my collection of JM. I have a Seiryu arriving this week.
