I finally picked up a copy of Maples for Gardens from the library. Great book and now in search of a good deal on a copy for myself. I read with curiousity about the 36 first described japanese maples by Ibe Ito in a work called Zoho Chikinsho, Volume 4 in 1710! Reading thru this and Vertrees was able to come up with the following 1) Aka shime no uchi 2) Kagiri Nishiki 3) Kiri Nishiri 4) Matsukase 5) Segai 6) Takao 7) Tamukeyama 8) Tatsuta gawa 9) Wabito This leaves about 27 more. Can anyone add to the list?
