    Re: Acer Palmatum Ki setsudde

    I have one of these plants, and took a couple of photos for you. I've had mine growing in a fairly shady spot. Here's the description from the originator:

    Ki Setsudoe is a seedling of an Acer circinatum which was growing in proximity with a variety of Acer palmatum cultivars, so it is thought to be a hybrid. Its growth rate is about half that of Acer circinatum, and its natural tendency is to grow into a multi-trunked large shrub of perhaps 10-12ft height and width. The name means "(color) in all seasons".

    Copied the above from another thread, where K4 answers a question about this cultivar. He adds:

    Leave outline is that of an Asian species, inflorescence also has non-A. circinatum structure.

    Here are some pictures Norm sent me of this cultivar. Spring, Summer, and Fall.

    Ron, since this is a hybrid wouldn't we expect it not to be just like Circinatum?

    Hi Kaintain,
    I just picked up this as a 2yrs graft but the tag said like you stated here 'Acer palmatum Ki Setsudoe' but this tree was listed at the Acer Circinatum here. So which one is this really belong to?. thanks

    Yep. We had a talk about it but I can't remember her exact reason for keeping it as a palmatum.

    I've read this one D. I came across it when I was getting ready to buy my first circinatum. Very good read.

    I haven't had a lot of luck with them so far. But I know there is one out there that will adjust and thrive outside of its normal habitat.
