The Laceleaf Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum ‘Filicifolium’) looks great with or without snow in October. The normally light green leaves become this rich “red” color in the fall. Often starting to “turn” at leaf’s edge in late August, this maple plays a starring role in this part of the garden. In early spring, its’ brilliant red “flowers” are thrilling too. Something to look forward to all winter while enjoying its form and red branches contrasting with snows of January and February.
