Birth of a Dragon

Portland Japanese Garden

NATURE FINE ART LIMITED EDITION OF 100

Japanese Maple Trees are native to Japan, Korea, Eastern Mongolia and southeastern Russia. Japan began cultivating the trees in the 1700s. Swedish doctor and botanist, Carl Peter Thunberg, gave it the name palmatum because of the hand-like shape of the leaves after a trip to Japan in the late eighteenth century. Japanese horticulturists have created hundreds of cultivars over the centuries some of which have been lost in time and the first was introduced to Europe via England in 1820. Cultivars are chosen for the way that they look. Aspects like leaf shape and size, leaf color (ranging from chartreuse through dark green or from red to dark purple, others variegated with various patterns of white and pink), bark texture and color, and growth pattern.

One of the most iconic Acer Palmatums in the northwest is the beautiful maple growing in Portland’s Japanese Garden. With it’s twisting branches and variegated leaves of green and red, the the tree looks beautiful in any season. Photo © copyright by Kevin D Shearer.
