    Wonderful, but so sad you no longer have it N. What happened?

    I'm not sure, I've lost three in that particular bed over the years, one a beautiful Shishigashira, there's a large bamboo growing about eight foot away that I suspect may have had something to do with it, or it is just a too exposed position, shame really as they both grew beautifully for a few years and then just didn't make it through a winter.

    That would be my thoughts on their demise N. They really starve the soil of water. And so very competitive and as we know maples don't do well with competitors.
    I do hope you get another Ariadne N. It is an amazing maple.

    15th June 2021 and my Ariadne has leafed out to some lovely colours. It's always my favourite when I see the leaves like this.

    17th September 2021 and my Ariadne is doing everything right this year. I think I'm going to have a nice display this Autumn.
    Glad I could share it.

    21st April 2022 and I wanted to show just how late a lot of my trees are here in leafing out. This is my Ariadne a few minutes ago.

    Ariadne, so pleased to have one of these again, I'd forgotten quite how beautiful they are.

    15th May 2022 and I don't think there are many cultivars that can give as much pleasure in a garden than Ariadne. Here is mine this morning fully open now.

    Here goes, my first post. Just got this Ariadne recently. I was drawn to it early on in my plant hunting. I love the leaves. I find this forum extremely useful in my research. Cheers.

    Good morning @GardenCycles and welcome to the maples forum, you couldn't start with a better cultivar on the forum than Ariadne, it is up there with the very best IMO. Yours looks wonderful.
