I say it's a maple of some sort, others say otherwise.

Do you know the proper name for this plant?

@JPB,
Maybe! That looks about right.

Thanks, JPB!

@JPB,
That has to be what this is but I recall finding it among the Acers in the garden shop. I want to buy a couple more of them and i want to be sure I ask for the right thing.

@boomerang,
Yours (and the pic I posted) look to have been trained more as trees. Mine is in a pot and very bushy. More like this.

@boomerang,
I wasn’t sure of the name either but I have something like it growing in the front of the house only this one is larger.

@JPB,
I was reading that you could make them bushier -- that might happen where I want to plant them but I'm a sucker for tree "bones" and I'm always looking for things with interesting limbs or bark. I'm always picking off low growth.


I'm lusting after a paperbark cherry for my front yard but I'm afraid it would be too big.

@jcboy,
Oh! I love that! Is it in a sun or shade? I need some interesting sun plants.

I'm thinking Florida shade plants are probably Oregon sun plants.....
