    Creepy, but a nice looking tree.

    The beauty of this tender species is its leaf outline, a feature disrupted in this collector's curiosity.

    Is there any information on this cultivar? Who introduced it? It's labeled as Acer campbellii but it looks more like Acer sinense or one of the other former subspecies.

    Hi @Adrag I think Mr Maple might be a good place to make an enquiry as they have in the past stocked it.

    I'm with Ron on this one - hideous, looks diseased, or chewed up by capsid bugs or similar.

    @Acerholic , I got it from Mr. Maple. I asked Tim about it and he didn't have any information.

    That's interesting, he is very knowledgeable and especially on maples they sell.
