    Acer campbellii subsp. flabellatum

    Fell in love with the beautiful shape of the leaves of this Acer.
    It was only bought at the end of June 2008 as a whip. It has turned the most stunning autumn colour.
    It was bought from the famous Hergest Croft garden in Herefordshire,owned by the well respected Lawrence and Elizabeth Banks. See...

    Mild climate species, the typical subspecies having done well in sheltered west coastal UK gardens.

    Although still listed elsewhere as campbellii ssp flabellatum, Flora of China now makes this a separate species: http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=2&taxon_id=200012979.

    I've listed mine this way, recently acquired from Pan Global plants. No picture yet, sorry. The FC in the wild appears to be yellow, I'd be delighted with the beautiful red from the Hergest Croft plant! :)

    Thanks Emery. Will leave a redirect from the previous name so that all roads lead here.
