AMOENUM, green. This is a large leaved Japanese maple, similar to 'Osakazuki', with bright green leaves and a nicely rounded structure; almost as wide as it is tall. Leaves have five to seven lobes and are 2 to 3" long and 3 to 4" wide. In spring, the leaves emerge with a tinge of orange-red and turn again in the fall to brilliant tones of red. This is a strong-growing tree with leaves that have good substance and texture and a durable color that does not easily sunburn.

Omato has my favorite leaf shape: broadly ovate lobes on good sized leaves. The spring color orange tinged; the summer color is green and the fall color is various reds. The tree can reach 24' but is in no hurry to do it.

Different and handsome, this strong-growing 15-20' tree has large (to 4"), leaves with 5 to 7 sharply pointed, double-toothed lobes ; BRIGHT red fall color; will tolerate some sun. Sun-PSh/Med
