Autumn portrait of
'Oshio Beni' Japanese Maple
The spring & summer leaves of 'Oshio Beni' Japanese Maple
are purple, fading to green in September, then darkening toward red
between September & mid to late November. This photo shows
the leaves late in October (2004) as the leaves
darken through new shades of purple.
Seen at October's end (2005) shortly after rainfall, an almost perfect purple scant days before turning fiery red.
Early in November (2004) the leaves are taking on quite a
glamorous intensity, though not even now quite as saturated-red
as it will be at its height of color.
Here's a shot from further back on the same
extremely rainy day in early November.
The leaves reach their maximum of ultra-red later in November (2002).
Because its varied autumn colors last the entire length of autumn
before the leaves fall to the ground, Japanese maples provide the
longest-lingering autumn colors of any tree.
