A very strange group of blooms!
|[ Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum 'Butterfly') | Posted on November 8, 2011 ]
The overall color of my Butterfly Japanese Maple is very pale. Other Butterflies that I have seen are about half and half or mostly green. My garden is in Bakersfield, CA, where it stays in the 100's for a good portion of the summer. My Butterfly grows in total shade except for the occasional peekaboo sunlight for a few minutes in the afternoon. In the spring the overall color of my Butterfly is the palest creamy yellowish white with occasional green streaks in the leaves, and by August it slowly changes to a pale chartreuse yellowish overall color. I really love my Butterfly, and I have never seen another quite like it!

This miniature rose won the ARS Award of Excellence in 2001. It has a nice apricot color that can be more pink-apricot in cooler weather, and the older flowers do fade to very light apricot. I think it really is at its best as a tree rose, as it seems to have more petals and lots of blooms. It seems quite disease resistant, at least for me in our drier climate.
