    I would like to add my photos of my Corallinum in Spring 2020. This cultivar has a freshness that others fail to compete with IMO. Compared to others that display lovely shades of pink, it is also surprisingly hardy.

    This is the 6th July 2020 and after a battering of strong warm winds for the past 4 days my Corallinum is doing very well. It is in full sun and not in a sheltered position.

    29th July 2020, as promised another photo of my Corallinum. It loves the sun. And I love this cultivar.

    7th August 2020, rain through the night thankfully, as it's going to be the hottest day this year in the UK. I will post my maples during and after this heatwave.

    This is the 10th August 2020 and still in the heatwave. This is my continuing diary of my maples throughout the Summer as requested.
    My Corrallinum has gone from golds to green in a matter of a few days. So fast the change now!!

    This is a recent addition to my collection and does not disappoint. It seems to do fine in full sun and I am looking forward to seeing it grow a little bigger and fuller.

    @MapleMO, bet your pleased it's in the ground, I'm with you on this one, it is pretty and stands up well to full sun.
    Looks like you are having a lot of fun planning and planting out your trees. Trouble is what to do with all those empty pots, Lol.

    Hi D, indeed loads of fun. I am so fortunate to now have a bit of garden to put them in as I do find it challenging to keep them thriving in a pot. Yes, got a barn full of empty pots now waiting to be filled again!

    @MapleMO, good to hear. Empty pots can lead to more visits to the nursery though, lol.

    27th August 2020 the winds have died down at last. Some suffered more than others.
    Two weeks in and my Corallinum is now going into Autumn colours fast.
    Loved this one this morning, very much my favourite in my garden today.

    4th September 2020 and the days seem to be getting shorter and shorter, which is a bit too fast for me. Busy time of the year in the garden for us maple growers, with less daylight !!!
    A morning with no dew or rain, but colours now popping up everywhere!!
    Probably my favourite in my garden today, bar one. 'Starfish'.

    7th September 2020 and in Southern England it is getting warmer once again. So surprised to see my maples with such dry leaves this morning. But this year is so very different for so many reasons!!?
    New growth yet again in my garden and this on my Corallinum. I do have some dead wood to prune out today on my Corallinum and I expect this will sadly have to be done in a few weeks here.

    9th September 2020 and new growth springing up everywhere. It so warm and today at 0800hrs it was 18°C.
    I had to show this, Autumn colours emerging fast and new growth a few days ago. What a mixture!!!

    15th September 2020 and half way through the month already, but it is hot again, 30°C yesterday and expected hotter today.
    But as is so often at this time of the year, the morning dew is here again, making trees look pretty.
    My Corallinum is changing so fast, it's hard to keep up with it.

    October 6th 2020 and very wet, but with early morning sunshine it is making my maples look rather pretty IMO. I took tbis photo to try and show that the new growth has not been hit yet.. As can be seen even now it's holding on.
