Memorial Maple

 We have just planted a specimen Japanese Maple
[Acer palmatum 'Pung kil']
which was funded in memory of
Sarah O'Doherty
who lived across McCallum street
before her passing in 2016.

The deep burgundy leaves and purple stems offer a dramatic contrast to the corrugated foliage of Hosta 'Deep Blue Sea.' And in the fall, the delicate Maple leaves should turn a vivid eye-catching red!
