Japanese Maple Collection
Located in in Raleigh, NC, the JC Raulston Arboretum holds one of the best collections of Japanese maple (Acer palmatum) cultivars in the southeastern United States. There is a Japanese maple for everyone at the JCRA. Which is your favorite: purple-leaf, lace-leaf, upright, spreading, dwarf, or full sized?
Japanese maples (Acer palmatum), noted for their small size and year-round elegance, are the perfect symbol for the JC Raulston Arboretum. Look around you. One of these four-season beauties can be spotted from any location you stand in the garden.
We love Japanese maples! Here are some links to our youtube videos about our Japanese maple collection:
