    Hey all --

    This summer I purchased four new maples. Unfortunately, I lost the labels on two of them. One of the plants is Shaina and the other is Villa Taranto, but I don't know which is which. And these are very young plants, so I was not confident of using leaf shapes or colors for IDing them while they still had their leaves.

    Just today, I noticed that one of them has developed noticeably green wood. The other one is a reddish brown. So -- would you guys please take a look at your Shainas and Villa Tarantos, and let me know what color they are right now? I'd appreciate it!

    Thanks!

    Somebody on another forum said their Shaina is brown, so I think I've got them straight now. Thanks for the help!
