Japanese Maples and Conifers

Acer palmatum 'Octopus'

 

The name aptly describes this cultivar with long aching branches that spread like tentacles in all directions. 'Octopus' forms a large spreading irregular mound. The deeply dissected leaves emerge a bright pink red in early spring before turning to dark purple. When summers heat arrives the leaves first bronze before becoming mostly dark green in hot climates. Fall color is breathtaking almost fire engine red.
