    One of my new fall additions. I'm looking forward to this chameleon maple show off next year.

    Descriptions from MrMaple @timnichols

    'GABLE'S GLORY' IS PERHAPS ONE OF THE MOST STRIKING JAPANESE MAPLES IN THE NURSERY TRADE TODAY. THE SPRING COLOR CAN RANGE FROM A PINK-RED TO A BRIGHT CHERRY RED. AS THIS CHAMELEON LIKE SELECTION'S LEAVES MATURE, THEY MATURE TO A GLOWING ORANGE-YELLOW. THIS GLOWING COLOR IS QUITE STRIKING AND MAKES FOR A VERY COLORFUL SUMMER COLOR. NEW GROWTH DURING THE SUMMER IS A BRIGHT PINK-RED TO CHERRY RED. WE RECEIVED THIS SELECTION YEARS AGO FROM DEL LOUCKS, WHO STATED THIS COLORFUL JAPANESE MAPLE WAS FOUND BY LARRY GABLE. GIVE 'GABLE'S GLORY' MORNING SUN, WITH A LITTLE PROTECTION FROM THE HOT AFTERNOON SUN FOR BEST COLOR. WE EXPECT 'GABLE'S GLORY TO REACH 10-12 FT IN HEIGHT IN 15 YEARS.

    A few update and progress pics of 'Gable Glory'. So far a great growing/showy maple.
