Japanese Maples in our greenhouse.

This Acer palmatum is native to Japan. Its botanical name comes from its leaves, which have 5 deep lobes and resemble a hand. The Acer palmatum start coming into leave, this is a very beautiful time of the year were you still see the structure of the tree and already the colour of the leaves. Because of the cold weather is pinching of the Maples now not advised. The leaves open and start growing but are not in balance and with the cold weather they are not reacting after the pinching. So better wait.

Fantastisch mooie bomen, die acers!
Bomen die het gehele jaar rond wat te bieden hebben!
Takkenspel, bladeren, mooie stammen, stamstructuren,...
Moest ik ze nu allen perfect kunnen opkweken, verbeteren, onderhouden, zou 'k ze misschien nog liever zien!

Grtz to all,
