November is coming to a close in Beaufort, SC, and the Japanese Green Maple Tree on Craven Street is showcasing its dashing fall colors. This particular tree is featured on The Beaufort Tree Walk, a self-guided tour from the Lady’s Island Garden Club. According to the handbook, the Japanese Maple thrives in partially shaded locations. Being an evergreen, the Southern Live Oak Tree towers above the Japanese Maple, providing the perfect mottled shade year-round. I wonder what the people of Japan, China and Korea would think to see this ornamental tree decked out with our southern Spanish Moss.
