    25th April 2022 and my Amber Ghost is now putting out leaves. Early days, but I'm pleased.

    Another Ghost I’ve been lucky enough to acquire - nice colours coming through…

    My two Ambers from the past week. Ground and potted , such a shame you don't get a longer period of the spring colours before they start to change into summer colours.

    Totally agree M , always found that the reticulates are for Spring, as the greens are for Autumn.

    24th May 2022 and the colours are just amazing at this time of year on my Amber Ghost. They seem to change daily.

    How is Amber Ghost's sun tolerance?

    I have a mostly full sun area in Oregon zone 8b that I am hoping to plant another maple in. There is already a Shirazz and Osakazuki in this same area and they have been totally fine with little to no leaf scorch.

    Hi Connor, I keep my Amber Ghost in morning sun and afternoon and evening shade. I had it in more sun several years back, but it fried . It is now very happy. I'm in zone 8b UK. As I said on another thread, IMO the reticulated cultivars need protection.

    27th May 2022 and I wanted to post this today after conversations last night.
    This is kept in a lot of shade, and it enjoys this position. It will, keep these colours for most of the Summer also. If it has more sun it would brown at the lobe tips.
