    I find it very encouraging that professional growers participate to the forum to contribute to the better understanding of maples. Mr. Maillot, you should contribute more often and, maybe, other growers will also pitch in a bit.

    Mr Mallot,

    I'm glad you have such high standards. Can you recommend a grower in the US that matches your excellence for cutural practices, especially concerning variegated cultivars?

    Many thanks!

    Mr. Maillot,

    It is great to see European nurserymen on UBC. You have beautiful trees that seem very true to cultivar. How can we get your trees like this here in the United States?

    Thanks,

    Tim Nichols

    July 19th 2020, after early morning rain my Fujinami Nishiki has brightened considerably. I'm still waiting for the tell tell deep purple mid leaf that is this cultivars trade mark.

    Beautiful picture. I’m waiting for Guy Maillot to get in touch with me regarding this one. He had one that slugs got to and it got munched. When it has recovered he is going to send it out. I’m going to be super vigilant regarding the pruning of any reversion and hope that it can hold on to its variegation.

    @Luke’s Maples, thanks Luke. The varigation like many can take a few years to show. But you are right that reversion has to be kept an eye on.

    25th August 2020, the calm before storm Francis arrives. Several weeks since my last posting of my Fujinami Nishiki. Some varigation if you look closely, but as I said before, this varigation is rather unstable year on year. The dark purple has not arrived in 2020.

    28th August 2020 and the ground is incredibly wet for the time of year. Just had more hail stones and my maples that are heavy in leaf do not like it one bit.
    As promised another update, no varigation I'm afraid, but still pretty.

    Well it's the last day of August 2020 and as we have had a lot of rain and cooler weather here in England over the past two weeks, all my maples are doing well for the time of year.
    Tried to get as close as possible to show that the varigation is just not there this year. Perhaps a few purple marks if you look very very closely!!!

    10th September 2020 and my maples are now racing into Autumnal colours. So warm and sunny at the moment, it does seem a bit strange though.
    A couple of weeks on and my Fujinami Nishiki is in full Autumnal mode. Always a first to start these colours and to loose it's leaves.

    12th September 2020 and believe it or not, new growth is everywhere in my garden together with Autumn colours emerging. Temperatures of 31°C expected in a couple of days.
    Yes new leaves opposite the old on my Fujinami Nishiki. Looks quite strange.

    25th September 2020 and some colours are more subtle than others. But that is the beauty of maples they are all so different and often the same tree is different year on year. This is why they are loved the world over.
    My Fujinami Nishiki does buck the trend here a little with being subtle !!!

    5th October 2020 and very ominous dark skies that made my flash go off when taking photos this morning. But my Fujinami Nishiki is actually this bright atm in my garden

    9th October 2020 and my Fujinami Nishiki is still glowing amongst the maples that have not turned yet. This cultivar always turns early and drops it's leaves before others have even changed. I do plant my trees for a succession of colours.

    28th April 2021 and here is the first of the seasons leaves for my Fujinami Nishiki. Not many yet but I thought worth capturing.

    30th May 2021 and my Fujinami nishiki is so happy in the sun, so after a few PM's about this I thought I would continue to show how it copes in my garden over the next few weeks.

    6th July 2021 and this one is being very slow this year with little to no new growth. Are the April frosts taking it's toll!!? Time will tell.

    20th April 2022 and a very wet Fujinami nishiki leafing out in my garden this morning. So I had to take a photo to share.

    14th May 2022 and I wanted to show how the sunlight on different days affects how this cultivar looks.
    As can be seen on the 10th May on a dull overcast day compared to today.

    21st May 2022 and there is quite nothing like raindrops on a Fujinami nishiki to make it look extra dark.
