    20th November 2020 and my cute Beni Hime loved the setting bright sun on its leaves. I loved it also.

    23rd November 2020 and the colours are now of a glossy appearance. I say to everyone and especially those who want a maple but do not have much space, ' go for this cultivar '.

    10th May 2021 and my Beni hime survived all the frosts thankfully, and this morning after some very welcome rain the colours are emerging.

    21st May 2022 and the overnight rain was very welcome for my little Beni hime. It looked very happy, if not a little soaked....
