Japanese Maples and Conifers

Acer palmatum 'Chantilly Lace'

 

Found at Red Maple Nursery in 1949 and introduced by Billy Shwartz this great little maple with the Rock and Roll name and very finely cut leaves.  New growth appears red but very quickly changes to green from the center of the leaf out. This effect gives the plant almost a variegated appearance. By summer the foliage is light green almost chartreuse and contrasts greatly with other green maples that start yellow-green only to darken as summer approaches. Fall color is bright raspberry red. 'Chantilly Lace' grows into an irregular mound, some pruning of unruly branches will add to it's appeal.
