Japanese Maple

A shot of a branch from the Japanese Red Maple in the front of our house. We planted this "small shrub" almost 15 years ago when we moved into our house. Assured by the garden center that this variety would not exceed 15 to 20 feet, it's now pushing 25 feet and waves outside our upstairs office window. I love the pretty, delicate leaves and they turn a deep rusty coral in the fall.
