The Variety of Japanese Maples

Acers are natural companion plants for Rhododendrons, adding some wonderful texture to a mixed garden. The pictures on this page are some of the Acer cultivars that I grow in my garden. I currently grow 64 Acers

There are hundreds more, and to learn more about them,  I recommend the 3rd edition of Vertrees "Japanese Maples" as a very useful primer.

Please click on the images for a larger picture and information about the maple. The images are arranged in alphabetical order, left to right and top to bottom.  You will be able to see the name of the Maple by hovering on the image.

Many of the Maple descriptions here are quoted from an excellent website - Mountain Maples
