    Or
    Does anyone in this forum have a nursery that sells maples online or in a catalog?

    Having nice photos of your plants makes a huge difference in selling them. If your nursery is in Oregon, i could come out and photograph all your trees.

    If you want to use my photos on your site/catalog, I would love to exchange some of my photos for a couple 4'' or 1 gallon maples .

    Is #1 a close up of Shishigashira? I agree with Chimera on 2 and 3, but I wouldn't know a ghost if it jumped out at me...

    good job. the shishigashira was hard because it doesn't have the dense compact look yet (it only has two leaves!).


    #1 - newly grafted shishigashira.
    #2 - Higasiyama
    #3 - A. shirasawanum 'Aureum'
    #4 - Peaches and Cream
