    I have only had this maple for a short time and I was unsure of it at first being the right tree. But as the leaves have matured, I have become more confident that it is indeed the shirasawanum form of Junihitoe.

    I think the last photo of a mature leaf gives the best impression of the tree while one can see the variety of color and leaf shape in the newer red-tinged foliage. I look forward to watching this one mature.

    These pictures are my A.S. 'Junihitoe' This tree was purchased about 12 years ago and was about 6 feet tall then. It now is only about 8 or 9 feet tall but much wider.

    Love this plant. 'Junihitoe' has a archetypal maple quality about it.


    This tree came from World Plants 3-4 years ago. It's grafted at about 10" where it abruptly changes bark texture and color.
