    Interesting, mine did very poorly in the drought this year; it did survive but lost lots of leaves from the top. I will be surprised if there's no die back.

    I agree with the others, this is a super maple, not sure if there's a better yellow leaved cultivar in any maple species.

    Hi Alex, mine is in sun probably from about 15h onwards. But it's planted near some mature poplars, which really dry out the soil. That may be a bigger factor.

    I think that's your problem Emery, poplars will pump all the water out of a huge volume around the trees, tough environment for most other plants.
    It is a nice yellow which I would put at the same par with A. capadocicum 'Aureum'.
    By the way Flora of China (with the contribution of de Jong) no longer talks of A. longipes subsp. amplum but A. amplum subsp. amplum.
