    I thought I would add this picture to this forum as most people think it is a flower of sorts. I have a Garnet that produces the most wonderful colours when it is opening up after winter. Pity it fades during Summer.

    Enjoy.

    While it does fade, even as it greens out in the shade my Garnet is pretty spectacular!

    Re: New leaves from a A.P. Garnet

    Here is pictures taken today of a friend's tree.

    He doesn't know what it is. Do you think this is a garnet ?

    Would you happen to know the name of the hostas that are planted in the foregound of the lovely tree?

    Garnet has some of the nicest colors of any red JM to me, sort of a rosy orange red. Too bad it doesn't keep its color better in the summer heat, although I've heard the colors last better in full sun. Mine is in part shade.

    I've had one in a container for a couple of years, but decided to plant it this spring. It's going to get a lot of sun. Looking good so far.

    My Garnet has started to have a lot of green, a question I was asked today about today by @Mani. I thought it best to post a photo as this can speak far more than words. This is very typical of this cultivar at this time of year.

    11th August 2020 and the heatwave continues, trying to update as many as I can as requested, even if they are not looking too good. Important to do this I feel.
    My Garnet is doing pretty good. Sorry I have not updated as I promissed I would. I will make a note to do this one again in a few days.

    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.
    From extreme heat to a glazed look to my Garnet today. Both equally pretty IMO.

    21st August 2020, two named Summer storms are going to hit later today with winds of 50 mph plus, so I thought it better to take photos early.
    All have picked up this last week due to cooler conditions and long awaited rain. The colours are changing !!!!
    The sun was shining on my Garnet, so thought I would add this today. Sometimes it's just about the moment!!!

    6th September 2020 and there has been a lot of talk on the maples forum about the strange colours this year. Yes they are strange, but enjoyable to see none the less.
    There is something about early morning sun and shadows that my Garnet just loves. Even a little bit of leaf scorch does not deter this one from giving pleasure.

    30th September 2020 and the sun and sprinkling of raindrops on my Garnet made it glow this morning. Little bit of scorch on some tips but nothing too bad at all.

    10th October 2020 and my Garnet in the early morning dew has a presence that just makes you stare.

    5th April 2022 and my Garnet is well underway now. It seemed to ignore the Spring frosts so far this year.
