    'Baby Lace' is a delicate laceleaf maple with extra small leaves.  These leaves actually get smaller in age until they are the size of a thumbnail!  Its leaves emerge orange and red in spring, quickly changing to green for the summer.  Fall colors are orange-red to pink-red.  This cultivar is vigorous but dwarf, only growing to 3 feet.  'Baby Lace' forms a small, dense shrub that is great for bonsai or small gardens.  Rick Rey of the Delaware Valley Agricultural School found 'Baby Lace' in the early 1980s as a witches' broom, and was named by Edward Rodd of Raraflora Nursery in Kinterfield, Pennsylvania.
