Maples come in all shapes and sizes from dwarf varieties for small courtyards and pots to larger weeping Maples to set off the Japanese style garden or to provide a focal point, and right up to large trees to create shade or to line a driveway.

New breeding has produced a range of tall slender forms to fit into tight spaces along a boundary fence or along a narrow driveway.

Of course they all have their distinctive lobed or feathery dissected leaf shapes and colour variations from lime green to pink to the deepest reds.

Autumn sees their seasonal finally with a spectacular show of fiery autumn colour tones of golden yellows, bright oranges and shades of scarlet red.
