Q. Can you suggest a replacement tree? I lost my Magnolia tree this year after the cold winter.
Dear Jane: Acer palmatum 'Bloodgood' is a taller Japanese maple with good color. Also, it is readily available in the market. Another variety that is also a little taller than the Orido Nishiki is Acer palmatum 'lSango-kaku'. However it is harder to find If you can find a source for it, it has beautiful bark and pretty foliage.
