Stanley and sons has officially named there seedling maple that was previously known as ‘Unknown’ to ‘Jewels’ in honor of their new daughter-in-law and Steven’s wife Julie Meloy. She is known as ‘Jewels’ in e-mails and text messages.
For all of you that have purchased the maple as ‘Unknown’, please at some point, change the tag so that ‘Jewels’ is not confused as being a new variety.
‘Jewels’ was founded 20 years ago as a seedling in their understock. It is a nice rounded shaped maple similar to a hime type. You can check the website for a new photo of the maple which is a photo of the original stock plant at Stanley’s.
