Acer palmatum 'Mayday'
Rare Peach Orange Miniature Japanese Maple

Zones 5-9

'Mayday' is a new selection of a peach-orange to white variant of the ever popular 'Mikawa yatsubusa'. It has proven extremely difficult to propagate and we are excited to finally have these few available.

'Mayday' leafs out in the early spring as a peach-orange to white in early spring. The color is dramatic. As the colors begin to fade, 'Mayday' turns a beautiful blonde color which may even be more appealing than the early spring. By late summer 'Mayday' is a beautiful shade of chartreuse green. Like 'Mikawa yatsubusa', 'Mayday' has a tight layering habit and is extremely miniature in its growth. 'Mayday' is expected to reach 3 ft tall and 3 ft wide in 10 years. The shingle-like appearance makes this dwarf stand out among other trees and makes everyone want a 'Mayday' for their garden. 'Mayday' typically turns yellows to orange for us in the garden. It would not surprise me if 'Mayday' did turn red in the fall in some environments. Not many of these. Better act fast before they are gone. Only 1 gallons available and I doubt any will make it to three gallons before they are sold out.

Open House adventure

My wife and I braved a rainstorm to attend our first Mr. Maple open house. Great adventure. I got a 1 gallon Mayday, and my wife bought a 10 gallon Purple Ghost and a 10 gallon Shirazz. Fun!
