MAPLES NZ GARDENERS GUIDE
Maples are not only very beautiful trees, they are easy and rewarding to cultivate. Prized for their wonderfully coloured leaves, maples are brilliant in the spring and often more brilliant in the fall. They also have a graceful habit of growth, whether it be upright or weeping, and many varieties of the Japanese maples, especially, are suitable for small gardens and containers. As this is a book for gardeners, the main focus is on maples for landscaping and it is the Japanese maples - Acer palmatum, A. p. var. dissectum and A. japonicum - that make up the largest group of maples suitable for gardens. Also described are the North American maples, such as Acer negundo and Acer rubrum, among others, and maples from other Northern hemisphere countries. How to use maples in landscaping, in containers and with companion plants is also discussed. With over 130 species and cultivars described and more than 115 colour photographs gardeners will be inspired to include at least one of these very special deciduous trees in their garden.
