Japanese Maples and Conifers

Acer palmatum 'Pixie'

 

Pixie' is very similar to the more famous 'Bloodgood in mature shape only much smaller. Foliage emerges bright red in spring before turning much darker and holding its deep red color well into the summer even in hot climates. Then the show starts  as the foliage turns first scarlet then becoming fire red as temperatures drop in fall.  The bark on new wood is almost black but this dark color fades with age and develops slight striations which along with it's graceful habit gives 'Pixie' some winter interest.
