Acer palmatum by jyoujo Acer palmatum by jyoujo
 
 acer palmatum thunb
 イロハ モミジ

usually just called as japanese maple ,Acer palmatum includes hundreds of named cultivars with countless forms, colors, leaf types, sizes. Some tolerate sun, and others like shade. Almost all are adaptable and blend well with companion plants. The trees are particularly suitable for borders and ornamental paths because the root systems are compact and not invasive .
this is one of the most beautiful momiji i've ever seen all around Japan (coast-to-coast),you can tell by the distinct colors of each leaf .
you can find it in the Tokugawa's family castle in Okazaki City . If you don't know who is Tokugawa Ieyasu ,don't even bother to ask me ,you probably don't even want to know what is this "momiji" anyway .

These are some lovely colors you have captured on this beautiful tree! I also appreciated the
background information on the tree as I do not know much about it,
but will look it up as it seems so interesting.
Great Job :)
