I have seeds available for trade for this lovely tree.
These seeds are collected from this large maple. I am guessing this tree is 15' tall at this time. This particular tree very graceful growing habit. I used the trees as an example of winter gardening, since they are usually very colorful, however, more of their gracefully curving branches show in the winter! I get volunteer seedlings all over the place every year too. The only color I have seen from the seedlings is deep red, so that can be a good sign!
There is some additional information you may need to know about these seeds. I am told that seeds from this tree are termed unselected seedlings so they simply will be called Japanese Red Maples. (They would not be named cultivars.)
There is no guarantee that the seedlings will look just like the trees. Seedlings do pop up all over the lawn and garden with the brilliant red color.
I would like to trade these for flower seeds. I am packing 25 to an envelope. If you are interested you can post here or drop me a note.
Thanks for looking!

I would love to have some I have (or will have) the following...
Balloon Flower (I have the blue ones but they are not even budding out yet)
Bleeding Heart, White (the seed pods are nice and plump but need a week or two to mature)
Blue-Eyed Grass I have been dead heading so far but can leave a few to mature)
Columbine, any special colors or varieties (these are plump too but will need another week or two to mature)
Or I can offer you right now, a rooted cutting from a curly willow and/or a baby red bells heuchera plant.
If you are willing to wait, I can include all in one package. It depends on how patient you are willing to be.
