    A red upright dissectum :) Supposed to be more upright in habit - like Seiryu - than a couple of the other newer introductions, though not quite as vigorous as Seiryu. Hopefully this will hold true; a lovely plant from Mr. Maple.

    Hopefully the color will last all season...

    Andrea,
    Here are a couple of pictures of my English Lace. Got it early spring of 2014. One picture is hoping to show the color and another the form.
    And thank you for your suggestion for the contact regarding my Amagi Shigure. I hope the recommended treatment works. So far it is faring much better than last year.
    Tom

    I see once again I have not properly attached my photos. Here's a second try.

    Geezer, how big/old was the tree when you purchased it (and from where)?

    Does anyone have any updates on this cultivar - I expected it would attract more attention. Does it retain its red color nicely over the season? If so, it should be a real winner.

    My English Lace retained color throughout the year. It has been in the ground for only one year so this will be the second spring. I'm looking forward to the spring color and will post a couple of pictures as it emerges. The growth of the tree last year was somewhat akin to the Seiryu. It is does not have dominant upright growth but is matching upright growth with width.

    Rich color this spring. In KS last year, it went fully green by late June/early July, but a nice, deeper green - it would be a nice counterpoint to Seiryu both in spring and summer. So far growth is fairly upright, and color this spring is very saturated.

    Andrea, my English Lace was approximately the same size as in the pictures I posted. I apologize for not answering your question sooner but just went back to this thread and noted I had not done that. I got the tree from Sunnyside Nursery in Marysville WA. I was there this weekend and they did have about a half dozen English Lace but the largest one was sold. Mine has come out in deep red this spring and kept it's color through the summer last year. Here are pictures of the tree now and a closeup of the leaf color.

    If anyone has continued interest in English Lace here is a photo from today. It is a very attractive tree with somewhat more horizontal growth than upright. This tree is approximately 8 feet tall And about 14 feet wide. vertical growth this year is about18 inches and is the best in the past four years.
    The red color does not fade through the summer.
    A very nice tree but I’ve not seen any for purchase in my area for the last three years. image.jpg
