Wow!  That was my expression when my four little Peaches and Cream Japanese maples started making leaves.  In the fall I usually place an order for several thousand Japanese maples, always looking for varieties that I don’t have.  The trees are usually delivered in March, completely dormant.  I unpack them and store them in an under ground bunker until it’s time to plant in the spring.  Come spring we start planting while the trees are still dormant, so it’s really exciting when they start making leaves because you never know what to expect.

When I saw the leaves on those Peaches and Cream I was like a kid in the candy store.  Since I only had four I actually dug them up right after planting and took them home and planted them in my little Japanese maple garden at home.  Then this fall I ordered an additional 50 Peaches and Cream!

There are so many incredibly beautiful Japanese maples that it’s really hard to pick a favorite.  They are all favorites for different reasons.  But Peaches and Cream is definitely one that I will be keeping a close eye on.

I am posting these pictures early in the year 2012 and I wish I had taken better photos, earlier in the year.  But these photos do show off the variegation pattern in the leaves and some of the coloring.  But I took these photos late in the year and by then the leaves had been stressed on these young trees.

But I still remember that beautiful Peachy Cream color the leaves had early in the spring and I promise to post some updated photos here as soon as I get them.

Peaches and Cream is hardy in zones 5 -8 and seldom gets over 7′ tall or wide which really makes it a special little tree.  Plant in well drained soil.

    Hello Mike,

    I am really thinking hard about your program.

    I would love to be able to speak to you about
    it. I live in the Nashville, Tn area. There are several established retail growers in my area and want to know how i can make this work in my area. They call me the
    “plant whisperer” so i know i won’t have a problem growing them. Do you have a # I can
    call you?

      Briggette,
      I don’t do telephones. Seriously, I don’t, couldn’t possibly take phone calls, that’s why I sell this system the way I do. The system comes with a money back guarantee. Don’t be concerned with competiion. You have none. They cannot compete with you. They have overhead expenses yours will be so little they don’t matter. For $37 how can you go wrong? http://freeplants.com/wanted.htm

        Briggette, I can attest to Mikes program and the value of it. It still amazes me that he charges so little for it for such valuable resources he provides.. top notch, you cannot get this anywhere for that price.

          Robert, thank you for your kind words! Are you coming back to Ohio? Still in Florida?

      Let me just say this.

      I had 11 buyers in two weeks on the internet that adds up to almost $800 profit from a single plant type that I propagated in my own backyard.

      I did those sales without even trying other than posting two free Ads online. I didn’t pay a penny for advertising.

      My problem now is, I’m selling plants faster than I can root the new cuttings.

        Jerry,

        You’ve discovered what I’ve known for a long time. People love plants and they’ll buy them any time they get the chance. http://freeplants.com/wanted.htm

    Do you know of any of your growers that have maples for sale and are willing to ship. I have over 60 Bonsai and have successfully kept different maples.
    Thanks,
    Ed
