The selected varieties shown on this page have coloured new foliage creating wonderful impact in SPRING. So now we can enjoy the vibrant leaf colours of maples every SPRING with these seleceted varieties as well as autumn (if autumn seasonal conditions are right).

Testing here in SE Qld has established their hardiness to hot winds and humidity. All they need is free draining, acid soil the same as for azaleas and camellias - so if you grow these in your garden then you may grow these selected varieties of maples also.
