The locally purchased trees are an ornamental Retama (I know, these guys are like weeds) and a Mimosa tree. The other two are Japanese Maples - ordered from a nursery in Oklahoma... and yes..... japanese maples are not native and adapted... but I'll work hard to keep them happy in my backyard.
The two japanese maples were delivered to me in these cool burlap bags. I purchased a 'Acer disectum (laceleaf) weeping Crimson Queen and 'Acer palmatum Emperor I.'
For now, I've potted all of the trees in large pots and will place them in their planned final spots just to make sure they're getting what they need - and not too much sun - before I put them in the ground.
I can't wait to post more pics as time goes on as each tree gets leaves and grows!
