Sal has been an avid gardener for over 40 years. Though his first interest was the dwarf conifers, he began seriously collecting maples in 1979. I love the layers of color and texture Sal has created with the trees. The property is a little more than an acre but has the feel of a much larger garden because of the flowing bed lines and conscientious proportion of the plants to one another.
Entering Flo's Garden is like entering a refuge, calm, cool and peaceful. We all thought you couldn't grow Japanese Maples in Southern California, Flo taught us differently. There is a beautiful story behind this garden. For more information visit their website at:http://www.442ndmemorialgarden.com/site/now.html Since Flo passed away in 2008 Sherry has taken over the care of the garden. Thank you Sherry.
This is an extraordinary garden in France with a beautiful collection of Japanese Maples. Gomero has cultivars I've never seen before though I'm working on finding them in the United States..... Thank you for sharing your garden with us.
