Acer palmatum Lady Abbess

Originally planted by Reverend Mother Benedict Duss O.S.B., Foundress and first Abbess of Regina Laudis. This lovely tree is named Acer palmatum 'Lady Abbess' because Mother Benedict was called Lady Abbess within her own Benedictine Community. My mother was contacted by the Abbess for information about Japanese Maples and they quickly established a fruitful exchange. After my mother’s death in 2006 I was contacted by Sister Esther with concern for the maple,a transplant was necessary due to construction. We collected scionwood to insure the trees posterity for future generations. The story of Mother Benedict and the Abbey is beautiful and inspiring and so too is the tree with its bright pink first emergence, extremely fine foliage and wide floating form. Very slow and consistent growth creates a beautiful layered structure. Brilliant red and orange fall color.
