All of a sudden, large red bark maples are all the rage.
This past weekend, several of the 36" Beni Kawa went to new homes. The one in the picture took a ride in a pickup that typically hauls horses. The new owners drove back out from Freestone with their truck so they could have new maple sooner.
Perhaps, the idea of a fully grown tree is reassuring. Folks know how big the plant will get and they know it will make an instant impact in their garden. These are actually dwarf [about 12' tall] maples. However, the red winter color dwarfs everything else around them!
