Prized for their graceful appearance and brilliantly-colored leaves, some maples flower in the spring while the red leaves of others in fall brighten the dullest day. Maples can be upright or weeping, giving gardeners additional options when landscaping. This book offers practical advice for using these trees to their best effect. Maple varieties come in bewildering numbers. This book breaks down the major groups and explains the conditions needed for growing each. While the maple requires well-drained, acidic soil, it can grow in less-than-ideal locations with proper care. Barrett includes specific conditions and describes the ideal factors for cultivation. Overcoming adverse conditions is covered in detail. Key sections of the book include: cultivation; propagation; Japanese maples; North American maples; landscaping with maples; companion planting; maples in containers; and more. In an A-Z format, illustrated with color photographs throughout and written in a personal, accessible style, Maples offers valuable advice for growing the many varieties. By successfully cultivating maples, gardeners can share a legacy that not only changes beautifully with the seasons, but will endure for generations.
