    This is a new graft I acquired at Ed's viewing. He had one growing in the garden that was slightly larger but not large enough to get a sense of a mature form. It exhibited an extremely weeping habit and it had lost a few branches due to recent windy conditions. The leaves are sturdy and handsome.

    Hi,

    Did you find out what rootstock was used?

    I have been having trouble getting anything buergerianum to graft to root stock of the same species. Your rootstock looks like palamtum, but i have heard it si not compatible.

    By the way, my wife and i meet you at Eds. We were the ones from Atlanta. Did you guys ever decide if you could go to Japan for the meeting this year.

    Hi Mike,

    Ed's viewing was a great day. I never asked about the rootstock for that plant, maybe Ed will reply to this post and let us know.

    It does look like palmatum rootstock. I attached a few pics of the union. It has not pushed any new growth but its buds look like they may do something.


    JAPAN, ouch would do almost anything to make that trip ......timing is not workable.

    Gil and Mike,

    Brian grafted these on palmatum understock. I have read that this is fine and also read that it is not suggested. The plant that I received from NC is doing fine in the garden and putting on some new growth since the wind storm damage. I will try to get some updated pictures this week.

    Thanks Ed,
    I will keep tabs from you and Gil how the graft is doing this fall.
    If good, i may try some grafts to palmatmum this winter.
    I have had no success at all with buergerianum root stock.
    Once your tree gets a little bigger, i might try and trade for some scions.

    Thanks again
    Mike

    All Things Acer by Don Shadow Nursery has this plant in there inventory available to the nursery trade at the MANTS show in Baltimore. I would expect to start to see these in retail nurseries soon. The pictures they had of the mature plants were great. Below are some pictures of my small plant.

    I just wanted to post some follow up pictures. This cultivar is a very fast grower. The only problem that I have had so far is the branches even when young are very brittle and break. Each attempt at staking up a center leader has resulted in a broken branch. The plants I saw pictures of were great and staked up very nicely. The above pictures I think were taken in May 2008 and these today. The plant is about four to five feet across and going strong.

    A full form picture of 'Angyo Weeping'. We have about 3 this size in the landscape. It looks really unique when its gets larger.
