new hybrid ,someone have news if is one natural hybrid?
Interesting. How do the breeders of this tree know who the father was?
I also wonder this. I saw this hybrid listed at Esveld, where they are usually quite careful about the hybridization claims at least if they bred it.
in "maples"(facebook group) i read this reply :is an introduction by dr. P.C.de Jong
I don't have permission to view the other pics.
Dr Piet C de Jong? That lends a different perspective to the discussion. In his article on hybrids in winter 2011 edition of Maple Society newsletter Dr de Jong mentions that the cross of Acer pseudosieboldianum and Acer japonicum 'Aconitifolium' is the most promising of the section Palmata crosses he is working with.
Given the dissected leaves this is probably that same line, it is not hard to spot 'Aconitifolium' characteristics. It is common practice with hybrids to state the female parent first and male parent second, indicating that Dr de Jong's cross has A. pseudosieboldianum as the female parent and 'Aconitifolium' as the male parent. Assuming the seed parent is A. pseudosieboldianum I can see how one could be reasonably sure the pollen parent is 'Aconitifolium'.
If this is the same plant that Esveld are selling then they have reversed the order of the parent names.
yep i confirm Doc.Piet C de Jong this news is by Esveld of course method used is secret i presume ;)
