    As I continue to daydream about my dream projects I am starting to kick around some ideas of interesting maple pairings. By interesting, I mean a variety of contrasts including color, seasonal intersest, shape, etc. One picture in particular that got my sap flowing can be found here:

    Any suggestions? (Pictures as always are a bonus)

    (sorry forgot to mention that pic above is from the olsens frosted strawberry thread (plus a shigitatsu sawa)

    Seiryu and Bloodgood, with just a glimpse of the pink of Shindeshojo
    The Shindeshojo is more prominent in the second pic

    ahh thats what I 'm talking about. i looked at my schematic (he sheepishly admits to spending sunday afternoon drawing out a schematic) and ironically enough I had a similiar pairing: seiryu, shaina, shindeshojo


    alex, I am not familiar with either of those tree so I will take a look . Thanks for the suggestion. There is a wonderful picture of a crimson queen with a palmatifidum in vertrees that has me thinking...

    I have a shin deshojo and a sangu kaku planted in front of some Llewelyn Cypress to nice affect.

    I'm planning a new planting where I would like to make use of 3 maples together, in a full sun site.

    Right now I'm considering a group planting of kiyohime yatsubusa with Red Pygmy and Ukigumo.

    I'm also considering a maple hedge along my back property line. Might end up being a vine maple grove there along maybe 70' of fence.
