I know it is late to be posting about spring colors, but better enjoy them late than never! Recently I was writing how much I love red and pink colors on Japanese maples. Here are two of my all stars on spring colors. Both have pink shades, the first one is my Beni hime Japanese maple, and the second one is Beni chidori Japanese maple. I believe my good friend Alexandre Dufour and I are the only ones in Quebec and probably in Canada to have this outstanding cultivar. I made cuttings this summer. Maybe 6 of them survived the critical first month, but I am still not sure if they will survive as Japanese maple cuttings aren’t so easy to succeed. Fingers crossed!
