|Cutleaf Japanese maple (Acer palmatum var. dissectum)|
Even at dusk. Even with a shaky phone camera. Even in November. The multilayered fall colour on this cutleaf Japanese maple is just otherworldly, like a picture by the Hubble space telescope.
I wonder if it might be Acer palmatum ‘Seiryu’ which, according to the Missouri Botanical Garden, is one of the few cutleaf cultivars with an upright, rather than cascading, habit. Anyone know?
