    Hi
    Just bought this but the label could be read as either spelling. Anybody got any other info other than the picture on the front of the label which depicts it as pink (early growth) and green edged pink later. Any ideas about the name as internet searches come up blank

    Cheers

    Can you post a picture of the tag with the picture of the tree as you describe:

    "Anybody got any other info other than the picture on the front of the label which depicts it as pink (early growth) and green edged pink later. "

    What nursery did you buy the tree? For example there is a chance we may know what that grower offers which may narrow down the possibilities.

    Keep in mind that the person who made the tag can and will make a mistake. I see it quite often. With that said the name on the tag could be completely wrong in the case of not being able to read the writing on the list, mixing letters around, misinterpreting, or in the case of typed tags, auto correct, copy paste errors, ect. The possibilities are endless, but the picture you describe of the leaves could clear this up. (Providing it is correct). We may not know for certain until the tree breaks dormancy to verify the photo is correct.

    Anyway with the collective knowledge of this forum I am pretty sure that we can provide you with an ID and additional information about the cultivar.

    hi
    mnaged to get the pictures of the label onto the system but unfortunately it put it on a copy of the previuos posting

    the plant was bought from a garden centre which I think imported this variety as part of a job lot of acers for the start of the season, probably from Holland.
    I have checked the sites of the main European growers/suppliers but cannot find any reference to this particular variety. it is in it's original pot outside and is just stating ti bud up. the trunk and stalks are very upright and a shade pale pea green.

    cheers

    It looks a lot like Acer palmatum 'Taylor'

    US Patent for Japanese Maple plant named ‘Taylor’ Patent (Patent # PP 15,943 issued September 6, 2005) - Justia Patents Search

    I can't be certain, but sometimes a tree like Taylor (name) gets branded with a more Japanese sounding name for marketing. Sometimes a tree is discovered and someone else discovers something "new" sometimes called "similar" instead of "cultivar" kinda joke of the trade. I do not mean to imply anything.

    See what others say, but for now check out Acer palmatum 'Taylor'. You may need to post some pictures as the tree grows this spring for better ID.

    Thanks for sharing the pictures

    Hi there,

    I’ve just visited a garden nursery I’ve never been to before and run across one of these acers labelled ‘Ijoshi’. I googled to see if I could find anything on it as I’m quite an avid collector and always looking to stumble on something I don’t yet have. But apart from this thread, I have found no other mention of this ‘Ijoshi’ either. I have to say, the moment I saw it, I said to my husband ‘that’s a Taylor’. The colours and varigation were exactly the same as the Taylor I have. The only difference this specimen might have had from the Taylor was that the leaves were bigger, but that could just have been a variation on that particular tree
