Japanese Maple and Hosta

This is a photo of my little Japanese Maple. Every spring when the leaves come out I am amazed at how beautiful the tree is. Below the tree is a chartreuse hosta that helps the maple’s gorgeous colors standout in the garden.

When you design your garden beds consider contrasting colors like red and chartreuse green to make a bold statement – it will add some exciting “umph” to your outdoor living space.
