Terrell’s Tree Japanese maple
Terrell’s Tree Japanese maple is a local introduction, named from the fantastic
collection of mature maples grown by our neighbor, Terrell Owens.
The large, deeply-divided leaves emerge a bright purple-red, becoming
green with purple tones. The strong branches are green, making a cool
contrast to the new leaves.
Fall color is a mix of outlandish yellow, purple and red. Terrell nicknamed this tree “Christmas lights”as a description this vivid display. Hey, maybe we should just call it that!
