Can't miss the fall splendour

Can’t miss the fall splendour

(Revised 17 Dec 2013)
Acer palmatum ‘Shojo’s general characteristics are not very distinct from ‘Bloodgood’ except for probably somewhat smaller and more refined leaves. It is one of my most reliable brilliant fall colour maples. When it was younger, I thought I observed a lighter colour veins that make the tree look sharp, but I do not notice that anymore. This tree is more than 20 years old, and is about 4 m high. It is in about 5% shade.
