Autumn Moon Japanese Maple, Take Two
My landscaper pulled out the little Autumn Moon Japanese Maple that I planted last year in memory of my late father-in-law. The tree was very small, probably only two feet. Still, it was leafed out therefore I have no idea how it could have been mistaken for a weed. It's inexcusable. There are a lot of things in my yard that look like weeds, but who could mistake the leaves of a beautiful maple? They also thought my Coconut Lime Echinacea was a weed, too.
I purchased a replacement which I planted today. This one was the next size up and it's quite a bit bigger than the other. These really are beautiful trees. I'm so glad that I took Carolyn's advice and ordered it. And as soon as I get reimbursed by the landscaper, he's getting fired. I have had enough of people destroying my plants. From now on, I'll be doing all my own mowing.
If you are looking for a well priced Japanese Maple, I highly recommend Wildwood Farm in Sonoma California.
