Acer palmatum--Japanese maple

People have said that the cold snap early this fall has led to especially nice fall colors. I agree! Trees all over Berkeley are especially beautiful this year, and the ones at the UC Botantical Garden are amazing. This Japanese Maple is one example. Japanese horticulturalists have been developing cultivars for centuries, and now hundreds are available. Wow!
