REF: The Maple Society Newsletter, Winter 2017 On page 10 Peter Gregory's article mentions a specific plant and its source, so I offer a snapshot of the plant today. 1985.2550 A Acer sinopurpurascens, planted 1989; location FD400 (Front Drive), J37 R23 (GPS 38037 23623). On BG-Base (the Garden's data base) the plant was coded Male on 21APR2005 by the botanist at that time Allen J Coombes. Measured height in metres: JAN1995=4, NOV2000=6.4, OCT2002=7.3, JUL 2007=9.3, MAR2009=9.4,SEP2010=10.3. Its form is rather different from the Hugh Angus cover photo at Batsford Arboretum, a single stem becoming three or four at chest height with leaf in the top half. It is in flower now, flowers looking as per those just posted by Emery. I have four images of the plant in my Windows photos but don't know how to give them URLs.
