    A new one for the forum and for me. This is a very slender linearilobum type maple, that is close to Fairy hair.
    I will post a few this year to update. Here it is this morning 9th April 2022.

    Is that a Stephen Roff find, D? I got mine a few weeks ago - I really like it so far:

    Fenna's colour is mellowing a bit, moving towards gentle orange instead of the eyecatching pink when it first emerged:

    I got this from Stephen Rolph online N. Not sure if he has anymore, but worth contacting him. Oaktree nurseries EBay.

    Thanks, I'd seen his eBay page but that one isn't listed, I'll have to get in touch.
    Edit
    He'll know in August if any more are coming in, so I'll call back then.
