Very pretty, thanks Alex. What is the date of the picture? I see 2010, but month would be nice to know. As I post this it is end of January, I wonder if obtusifolium is evergreen for you in Rome?
Thanks in advance,
ciao Emery :-) the pics date is the first week of may,and yes this maple in Rome is evergreen ;)
Usually evergreen in Seattle. The 2002 Hillier manual calls it "Very hardy".
Have just received one, a fine looking plant. Very root bound in the pot though, took quite a lot of repotting.
How about exposition, I assume it should do well with full sun?
good choise!! yes mine is sud-ovest exposition and good tollerance dry conditions :)
How about wind?
BTW Bean also lists it as "quite hardy" under A. syriacum.
hot wind ? max tolerance!this maple like maple discolor is one champion ,very good tolerate clay soil,hot wind,dry conditions,not see any branch with typical damage of species acer like pseudomas or verticillium :-)
I confirm what Alex says. Over here is in morning shade and receives full afternoon (hot) sun. Also takes drought quite well (not surprising knowing its Mediterranean origins)
