Villa Taranto is a compact linearlobum that one lady tried to tell me was variegated; I knew it wasn’t but what she meant was that it changed color every day: red orange in spring, yellow orange green in the summer and orange again in the fall. It has always been one of my favorites.

Aratama (Acer palmatum ‘Aratama’)

Acer palmatum 'Aratama'

Aratama is one of the brightest and most colorful red dwarfs (5′ in 10 years) because somehow it appears multi-colored a good portion of the year, so it sort of shakes up the eye. As luck would have it, the only picture I took is when it was uniform bright red when the best color is in the fall when it is all over the map. ┬ámaybe next year.

This upright red cultivar is smaller and more delicate looking than Bloodgood, otherwise it is pretty similar in that it holds its crimson color well in summer and has good scarlet fall color. Zone 5.

Sorry about the pic. It is truly the lazy man’s photo to put up a pic of a one gallon when there are beauties in the field, but if have seen Sango Kaku or Beni Kawa or any of the coral barks, then you can imagine this tree. Winter Flame is just a little shorter and a little bushier. And more resistant to pseudomonas? Those claims are out there. In my open windy location, pseudomonas is not a problem so I can’t test it. This one is my favorite.
