    Cute! This is a cultivar that's interested me for a little while... is it a nice one to have? How easy does it keep? Anything that sets it apart from the many other smaller red-leaved maples?

    i really like the tree although Beni Hoshi is very close if not near impossible to tell any difference but when I have them side by side i can see differences in the colors during the summer. In spring, I am not sure if there is a difference in color. The growth structure of both trees is different than most of the other red dwarfs.

    Here is my new Ruby Stars. Based on the Beni hoshi in my garden they have completely different color but then again they are in two different locations.

    I love my ruby stars. Here is a picture of the foliage.

    I was at a nursery yesterday and this variety stood out among pixie, rhode island red, and shaina; which were all in 7g containers. Many times they all get lumped into the same category but they are all different when you see them together.

    Here is my little ruby stars in a very tall pot. It has been in the same spot for 3 seasons and no winter die back even though it is exposed to winter winds and temps near 0F

    This one was bought for our Ruby wedding anniversary, as I'm sure a lot are. Two years on it is doing very nicely. We both just love the colours and how petit it is.

    What a difference 4 weeks makes. My Ruby Stars today is transformed to a near solid green. This is useful to see for people wishing to have this cultivar and thinking it will stay ruby red all Summer. It doesn't !!!
