this years spring color has been great
I like this green weeper, it has more yellow color to it.
Here is one of my Flavenscen which is in a pot, fall 2011
Here is mine which is planted with its fall 2011 color
Here are the colors for 2012. This tree was planted in a new location. It is in a little more shade.
Check out this gorgeous monster. ) 'Flavescens'
Flavescens is a very hardy maple in my garden zone 8b UK.
I have not posted a photo of mine until today on the 'cheering ourselves up with maples' thread, but did not want it lost in all the postings.
This year 2020 is the best it's looked even after the 34°C heat of June.
I will update in Autumn with how it fares. There is a hint of what to expect on the outer tips of the leaves !!
My Flavescens is changing almost daily atm, this photo on 10th July 2020 has hints of Autumn at the tips. I was going to leave the next photos until Autumn, but when I saw this I had to post it.
This one will definitely be added to the list.
@LoverOfMaples, good afternoon D, so glad you like it.
I think this is one Amazing maple showed on one of his videos this spring I talked to him about. It was beautiful. I wish he was closer I would definitely buy from him.
@LoverOfMaples, it is sometimes safer for our wallets to be a long, long way a way, lol.
@Acerholic I 100% agree. Lol
My Flavescens on the 30th July 2020, it certainly is proving that the dissectum's are the way to go in maple collections the way the climate is changing for whatever reason.
D, I so envy you over this one. Im so amazed by its beauty. I will continue to get joy from your post until I'm able to acquire one.
@LoverOfMaples, if it brings you joy, then its worth me updating the thread until you do get one yourself. Which I have absolutely no doubt you will, lol.
August 6th 2020 and extreme heat is forecast over the next few days, so I thought I would post photos of my dissectums before and after to show how they cope. This I feel can be useful for people considering buying a particular variety.
15th August 2020, lots of rain at last, the leaves have freshend up so quickly. My misting I carry out in the evenings in hot weather was of no use this year when temperatures were in the mid 30 C 's for many many days. It just evaporated so quickly.
Laying down a bit due to the heavy rain, but loving all that moisture going into the leaves at last. The reddening at the tips to the lobes look even prettier in the rain.
20th August 2020 and after days of rain after a heatwave, everything is picking up again. Severe storms coming tomorrow, so I hope I can batten down the hatches so to speak and protect my trees.
A few from the other side of the Atlantic have asked for regular photos of my Flavescens, so here it is in the early morning sun.
25th August 2020, the calm before storm Francis arrives. The colours are changing fast on this one now. Still showing some scorch to the tips, but as it's so late in the season, this will not stop the Autumn colours by dropping its leaves early.
30th August 2020 and it is definitely getting colder. My maples are very happy now that the Summer heat has passed. They are all enjoying the early morning sun.
Members just love this cultivar, those fiery red tips are possibly the reason. I love them!!
5th September 2020 and the diary continues, each day has a new colour on the leaves now. And tbh some rather strange colours this year.
This one I took for D@LoverOfMaples as there was talk this morning about Spring Delight. I mentioned Viridis but Flavescens is rather similar also. And perhaps a little more with the red tips.
As soon I see this one offered by one of my suppliers it will be mine!
Lol!!! It has to be done D.
