Here are a couple of shots of Acer palmatum 'Shaina'. This is a witches' broom that many have said came from a 'Bloodgood' but according to the text in "Japanese Maples" it came from an Acer palmatum f. atropurpureum and was discovered by the late Richard P. Wolff. I don't think it is the easiest to grow but I am trying it. I grafted a few of these in the summer of 2002 or maybe 2001. These pictures were made in June of 2003.
