I finally figured out one of my trees and don't believe it is in the database. But, I get confused on the registered name v. cultivar v. trade name and how to enter those.

Here is a web site to the nursery that developed these trees, which are a cross between a Japanese maple (Acer palmatum) and Korean maple (Acer pseudosieboldiarium). They are commonly called Jack Frost maples, but also have registered trademarked names of Northwind (mine) and a couple others listed on the web site. Even the trademark name is confusing - in one spot it is North Wind, in another it is Northwind. If one of the admins will enter it correctly, I will flesh out the details and add a photo, it is absolutely gorgeous in the fall. Thanks.

Here the plant Deb. The names will need some editing which I'll take a look at later.

Thanks Evan. I've put what I can find into the data details. There are two other hybrids that you could also enter in once you sort out the name thing - Arctic Jade and Ice Dragon, both part of the Jack Frost series, and all hybridized by Iseli Nursery (not sure where that comes into play).

Done! Maple (Acer Jack Frost® Arctic Jade®) and Maple (Acer Jack Frost® Ice Dragon™) Quite a few sellers use Acer x pseudosieboldianum so I've added that to the also sold as field. They look like great choices for zone 4 or 5.
