Japanese Maple Acer

Acer palmatum ‘Osakazuki’

It would be hard to single out just one Japanese maple in autumn at Eastwoodhill as there are so many that put on an amazing display each year. However, maples can be a casualty to the dry windy autumns that are prevalent get on the East Coast and this cultivar seems to rise above it all. 

Every year without fail, it puts on a stunning display of red. The Japanese maple is well sited here on the edge of Birch Hill Pond in Douglas Park so its reflection can be viewed on the water.
