Thank You Aimee Guiles & Boxwood Home and Garden!

A very rare cultivar of weeping Japanese Lace leaf maple has been generously donated by Aimee Guiles, owner of the new Boxwood Home and Garden nursery in Ritzville, Wa.   This newly opened nursery has many rare and unusual plants and gift items that we are unable to find in other nurseries in Spokane or even Seattle.  Amy's goal is to provide rare selections of plant material that will grow successfully in our zone 4-5 cold climate.  Her mother is a good gardening friend of mine who has also donated various elements to our garden and both mother and daughter are knowledgeable Plants people.

The name of this rare maple (Acer palmatum dissectum)  is called " Autumn Sunset" and it will slowly grow to no more than 4' by 4' with rich red and orange fall colors.  We are blessed to have such a rare plant in our gardens!
