    Nice! It doesn't even look over-planted.
    I like that one in the back yard with the white edge markings, above the hosta at 8:25. Do you have a name for that?

    Thank you! I appreciate it! That is Acer palmatum 'Higasayama'. It has cool fall color too, here in the photo of leaves in the front right:
    13

    The peak fall color remains cream with bright orange and sometimes pinkish purple.

    Ah, thanks for the name and the link. It's the summer colour I like so much! Based on one not all that convincing photo I found I was going to guess A. palmatum 'Roseo-marginatum' , now see that it's supposed to be a synonym.

    Yes in fact that is what the grower refers to it where I got my tree. I too love the summer color that is long lasting. Most fade away in Summer but Higasayama remains a star in the garden.
