'Olson’s Frosted Strawberry' Japanese maple (Acer palmatum 'Olson’s Frosted Strawberry')
Genus:  Acer
The foliage is bright strawberry red at first emergence, and slowly pink suffuses each leaf along the vein as the spring progresses. Graceful deeply divided leaves with serrated edges gently curve at the tips. In its mature form, this tree will most likely have wide spreading with cascading branches (Because this is a new cultivar and Japanese maples can be very slow growing, accurate information about this tree’s maturity can be difficult to come by) . This cultivar is a seedling from ‘Aka shigitatsu sawa’.
Noteworthy Characteristics:  Wonderful detail in the leaves and excellent form for a small tree.
Care:  Well drained, slightly acidic soil, consistent water
Propagation: 

Grafting generally yields the best results for Japanese maples

Problems: 

Needs protection from intense heat, does not tolerate hard water. Deer browsing might be a problem
