Gardening in mostly deep shade in Zone 6. My passion is adding more native plants to my landscape & clearing out the foreign invasives.

Stumbled across this #splitpersonality on a back road. The maple next to it was solid, bright chartreuse but this one went halfsies. #foliagefriday

There are two trunks... Maybe they're two different maples planted next to each other? Even the density and positioning of the leaves looks different between the two. Or maybe a graft, but the rootstock decided to also grow? Do people even graft maples..? 🤔

Didn't even notice the 2 trunks @beatnikcrab -- you are probably right!

@beatnikcrab I drove past this spot again and -- lo and behold -- there are 4 trunks, not 2. Two Vs forking upward into two separate heads of foliage. They just happened to be lined up perfectly when I took this photo...
