Colors on some of the trees for 2011 has been exceptional.
Acer Palmatum Fireglow. This is a dwarf Japanese Maple that should top out at 12 feet or so. It's situated in my family Hosta bed, which are all cut back now. Remains burgundy through the seasons, but thought I would include it with the Hydrangea Tar Diva in the background showing some yellow Fall color also.
Acer Griseum Paperbark Maple after planting it in late August.
Acer Griseum Paperbark Maple at the end of October. I added it for it's exfoliating bark, the red Fall color is just an added bonus. I didn't expect much Fall color this year with it being put in so recently but what a pleasant surprise it's been.
Malus Purple Prince this Fall. I love this tree and it's wonderful shape, the wonderful flowers in Spring, the beautiful Summer purplish green color and fullness, and the burgundy Fall color and then the added bonus of small purple fruits the birds eat over the Winter.
