Vitifolium (Acer japonicum ‘Vitifolium’)

The name means ‘grape-leafed’, and that is what the large leaves resemble; the tree can get up to 30 feet or a little more in a graceful open sort of droopy habit. As with other japonicums, the fall color is varied with oranges, yellows, purples etc. You can see a leaf changing on the left side of the picture. zone 5

Emmit's Pumpkin (Acer japonicum 'Emmett's Pumpkin')

Another in my series of ‘What’s in a Name’: everything. Emmett’s Pumpkin seems to promise what is most prized: orange color with a twist: pumpkinisity; I’m thinking this leaf is going to be round and fat and gloriously orange, and in the fall it is, but the rest of the year, the color is way bland. I will need to study this plant outside before I give it two thumbs up.
