Viridis Laceleaf Japanese Maple - Spectacular Fall Foliage!

This photo was taken outside of our office here at Greenscapes! This small tree has green leaves during summer, which gradually turn into vibrant hues of red and orange. The cultivar ‘Viridis’ is a beautiful green lace-leaf Japanese maple forming a mounding shape. Gardeners often plant this cultivar as a compliment to the red-leaved ‘Crimson Queen’ cultivar.

Woody Plants with Fall and Winter Interest

We are moving into autumn but it is not too early for landscape designers to consider which woody plants provide excellent autumn and winter appeal.  Features may include fruits: such as winterberry holly fruits now combined with leaves and later alone in clusters along stems, crabapples such as 'Red Jewel', 'Strawberry Parfait', and 'Bob White' which will retain firm and colorful fruits well into winter, and beautyberry (Callicarpa) with its metallic purple to salmon-pink to white fruits that will have color until major frosts.
