    Like last year at the same period, it's pushing out new leaves :

    I was rather sceptical about my ability to keep this one alive, but here is one of the two I have today :

    Looks great! Give it some sun, to help with hardening off.

    Both of ours died to the ground last year in the spring freezes. Both put out a little growth last year but then one died completely, the other (var. salweenense) still has a shoot, though I don't know if it will survive, really. I think these are probably hardier seed, as both of ours came from N. Vietnam. I tried to get some from Florama but they had sold out, sadly.

    One of my big seedling regrets, I had a tray of laevigatum some years ago, looking great. Then rodents at all of it. Sad...

    Hi Emry, the ones you sent me look healthy:

    Acer granatense (even if you're not sure it is, I think t looks like it), and Acer metcalfii :

    Well, the two I have are thriving. It's getting quite hot here (31°C today) so I give them a quick spray in the evening to refresh them, and water them in the morning. They seem to like it, they're pushing out new leaves.

    Emery (or others), do you have one in the ground ?...

    Barely. Both of mine are (were) from seed collected in N. Vietnam. The elder is dead for sure, in fact I would have dug the corpse today, along with other casualties I had hoped for, but the ground was like cement. The other, var. salweenense, died back to the ground last year but has one shoot. Hopefully this nice hot and sunny weather will help it ripen, so it will have a chance to survive the winter -- and more importantly, the spring.

    It's the last one which has no scorched or coloured leaves, they're all green :
