Japanese maple in full fall color. You might notice the unusual mounded nebari as well as the outstanding movement in the trunks and branches. Our source doesn't mention the variety or the owner of this brilliant tree
THE CORRECTION IS IN A CAPTION BELOW IN RED TYPE
apologies to Bill Valavanis
It’s peak fall color here in Vermont, though where we live it doesn’t look like a banner year. Mostly it’s the Sugar maples that are a disappointment. I think our long hot and very dry September caused them to give up and drop their leaves early
This one looks familiar. I wouldn't be surprised if we've featured it somewhere in our approximately 2,500 previous posts, but it's Monday morning and time is precious so we won't bother to hunt it down. Feel free if your curiosity demands an answer
We can’t say with certainty that the brights reds shown here are fall color. Some Japanese maples leaves are naturally red and our source doesn’t mention variety (or ownership), so we can only guess that these colors are due to seasonal change
This one also looks familiar (see just above) Now I know why this looks familiar. I just heard from Bill Valavanis. It's his Seigen Japanese maple and it's spring color rather than fall
Here's one that we recognize. It belongs to Walter Pall.
