    My Green Trompenburg is a young (3-yr. old) tree and it is planted next to a much older red-leaved Trompenburg. The leaves are almost identical in shape, but the young Green Trompenburg has, for the present, exhibited a normal maple shape, while the larger red Trompenburg has exhibited wild out of control growth habits. Green Trompenburg, true to its name, has a "hunter green" shade to its leaves which it holds through spring-summer-autumn. This particular photo was taken April 29, 2007 in southern Oregon.

    Hi Mapledia,

    I'm getting a Grn. Trompenburg soon. I just got Trompenburg and I loved it too much! LOL. Yours looks like a beautiful tree, with real promise someday. Hope that mine is as good as yours!

    Update: My G. Trompenburg came in yesterday and is looking wonderful and more "controlled" in its growth. Amazing cultivar and a favorite-to-be for me!

    I'll post some pictures in a cuople of days when it's fully settled in.

    I'm fairly sure all those posting on this site have had the following happen to them: you bring home a new JM, like it, post it on the UBC site being careful to describe what you observe. Then, a year or two later, the JM decides to do something different and you find your original post needs an amendment. During my first year with this cultivar, it was green-green-green throughout the growing season. However, you will see from the photos that mine showed a different spring color this year. The photos were taken July 11, 2007 and May 5, 2008. My Green Trompenburg is still growing in a rather controlled manner, in stark contrast to its Trompenburg neighbor, which is showing no control in its growth habit whatsoever.

    Great pics, and pretty nice specimen! Mine isn't as nice as this, but looking yours I hope that maybe years ahead mine will look like yours, Luddite. Thanks!

    Agreed that is a beautiful specimen. Mine is a couple of little twigs but I think that it'll grow a lot next year. Lovely cultivar!

    How is the fall display of this cultivar? Mapledia, are you getting any more color out of it other than green yet? It looks like Silver surfer is showing a little fall colors starting in his pics, is that about all it gets for fall color?
