Sounding more like a soft drink/crayon combination, Orangeola is actually a stunning selection of weeping, dissected, purple-leaf Japanese maple. Our oldest specimen at JLBG is now 27 years old, and measures 5′ tall x 12′ wide…sorry that size doesn’t really match what you’ll find on-line. We think it’s one of the most handsome clones we grow.
Throughout the year Plant Delights is continually adding new plants to our website. We have just added over 40 new plants this past weekend. You can check out all the new additions by clicking here.
Some of the exciting new additions are Disporopsis ‘Zebra Stripes’, an evergreen variegated Solomon’s Seal which forms a nice 22″ tall clump by spreading underground rhizomes.
Aucuba japonica ‘Fujikawa’ is compact female form and will form a 4′ specimen in 5-7 years. The narrow leaf gives a fine texture. If there is a male cultivar nearby, ‘Fujikawa’ will produce bright red berries in the winter which really stand out against the dark green foliage.
