One of our newest and best customers is the Biltmore Estate in Asheville NC. The folks at the Biltmore demand high quality, as anyone that visits the largest private home in America knows. Please visit their garden shop to purchase our Japanese maples.

Recently, I had the honor of being approved to take grafting wood from the 100+ year old Japanese maples on the Estate, planted by the very own Frederick Law Olmsted ( the father of American landscape architecture)

John (me) taking the scion wood from the Biltmore Trees!

The Biltmore has not yet decided how many Japanese maple trees they will keep to preserve the parent trees, but they may release some for sell next year. If you are interested in one of these Japanese Maples let me know and I will start a waiting list for the Biltmore Estate.
