    A newer cultivar, but listed in Appendix C of the Vertrees 3rd edition. While described as a 'Red' variety of the matsumarae group, it has very strong green undertones. The rusty color of the leaves is very pleasant.

    Having the luck to see a mature specimen of this tree, it will form a pretty sturdy shub-like tree typical of the matusmarae group. After 15 years, the tree stood about 10-12ft by nearly as wide.

    Here is a new photograph of the summer growth on my plant. What makes it exciting is that the entire first set of leaves was cooked off the plant. These are the first to rise from the new bud set. This photo was taken in early morning sunlight.

    The 1st three photos are from this spring and the forth is from the late spring last year to give some meaning to the description given in the initial thread post. This tree is not very large, only a couple of years old, and if I have the opportunity, I will shoot some photos of a large specimen that I know of to give some impression of what an attractive specimen this tree can make.

    I planted mine late in 2018 and it sailed through the winter and has done so well this season.

    As with many maples it shows a great range of colour through the year.

    I have attached pictures showing 3 completely different colours of its foliage (May, June and then October)
