    Another new addition that was introduced by Talon Buchholz. I'm very happy to have another yellow maple in the collection. Another plus, IT WEEPS!

    Description from MrMaple @timnichols

    GOLDEN FALLS' IS A BRAND NEW WEEPING SELECTION OF JAPANESE MAPLE THAT HAS GOLDEN YELLOW FOLIAGE. THIS SELECTION WAS FOUND AS A CHANCE SEEDLING FROM 'RYUSEI'. LIKE IT'S PARENT, IT HAS A HEAVILY WEEPING HABIT THAT WILL REACH THE HEIGHT YOU STAKE IT TO, THEN CASCADE FROM THAT POINT. 'GOLDEN FALLS' WILL CRAWL ACROSS THE GROUND CREATING A UNIQUE GROUND COVER WITHOUT BEING STAKED. GIVE 'GOLDEN FALLS' PROTECTION MORNING SUN WITH PROTECTION FROM THE HOT AFTERNOON SUN. FALL COLORS ON 'GOLDEN FALLS' MAY BE ORANGE TO RED.

    Update: I don't have any regrets about this one.

    Now you can see why it has this name D. It will be interesting to see how long it holds those colours.

    Update: I lost a lot of pics because I broke my previous phone and fell to backup my pics for about a month :(

    This is 'Golden Falls' in 6/16
