Acer palmatum 'Crimson Queen'  

Went out looking for ‘Crimson Queen’ after deciding it was the one red maple I wanted for the Northern garden. Since it is a common enough variety I hoped to get lucky at one of the local big box stores, especially as I am trying to transplant a maple in the heat of summer. I was lucky and found an enormous collection of them with some ‘Orangeolas’. This was especially nice, as I could pick out my favorite of the lot and compare shape and coloring with some underplanting options. Ultimately decided on some autumn ferns.
