After living in Japan for a few years, we were delighted to discover Ash's Japanese Maple Nursery tucked away on private property in a pine and hardwood maple forest. Thomas and Nancy Ash offer numerous varieties - Oshio-Beni, Crimson Queen, Red Emperor, and Dwarf Mizugaki - of the Acer Palmatum commonly known as Japanese Maples. Dwarf and full size trees are available for purchase to fit your landscaping needs no matter how small or large the space. In addition to their wealth of botanist knowledge, they offer pruning techniques to attain that coveted "floating" appearance. Schools and gardening groups are welcome to tours of the grounds which culminates in a lovely temple garden stocked with Koi in the pond.
