November portraits of the
Lion's Head Maple
Late in October & early in November
the soft green leaves of the Lionshead Maple
begin to turn a brilliant red & yellow.
The change is just starting in this first portrait.
Within a week or two
the entire tree is bright bright golden yellow
with reddish hues, the red becoming
becoming redder & redder by mid-month.
The colorful leaves cling to the tree until the start of winter.
This & all the above photos are from 2002.
Very early in November (2004) it is fully golden,
with highlighting reds barely getting started. When first planted
the lionshead didn't crowd the mailbox so much,
but it gets a bit wider & a bit taller each year.
Here it is on the same November day
as viewed form inside the yard.
Day by day reds are added to the gold
But this one branch was candy pink for a couple of days.
Read all about this tree on the main
Acer palmatum 'Shishigashira' page.
