One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

Acer triflorum at the top of China Valley
You can't see the exfoliating bark from this distance, but take my word for it; it's wonderful. I like this tree for so many reasons, not the least of which is it's precocious fall color. It starts the season off every year. Guess what? Fall is here.
