    Here are some pics of my new Kamagata from the spring of 2012. I'm not sure how old she is, coming from a local nursery that went out of business in the fall of 2011. I have her in a large container and she's around 3 feet tall, resembling a miniature tree with a single trunk and rounded canopy.

    This spring I hope to get pictures of the entire tree.

    Kamagata has always been a strong grower for me in a pot but since in the ground it has really exploded! I barely fertilize in pots and do not fertilize trees in the ground. Pictures from a young graft 8 years ago to now in the ground. It is in full sun almost all day and shows no sign of burning.

    @MapleMO, what an excellent photo diary. An older variety that will out live many newer weaker maples that's for sure.
    When did it go in the ground? It is looking very happy indeed, as you say.

    It has been in the ground for under 2 years as are most of my maples. We moved house 4 years ago for the bigger garden space but spent the first 2 years on the house and then 2 years on the garden as it was a blank slate. Now as everything is sort of finished I finally have time to put some pictures on the forum.

    @MapleMO, brilliant the more the merrier M. Really enjoying your maples.

    Under two years is impressive in how yours has adapted , I find around two years after planting out that they just start to get going.

    Look forward to seeing more of your trees on the forum.

    Another look at how fast my Kamagata has grown. First picture is from April 2019 and the second one from last week. Hopefully it stays this happy.

    K. is one of my favourite small maples but in the two winters it has experienced in my location (in ground) it gets more winter kill than I would like (even with winter protection). But by mid June it is generally back in good shape.

    Here winters have been very mild the last couple of years so thats probably why winter dieback is not an issue here.

    Yup, I am just commenting on my own location. And I am hoping that the more established it becomes the less die off it will experience.

    Your Kamagata looks pretty good to me. I have found that the first few years after putting in the ground from a pot I get die back, but once the roots have really settled this slows and slows. Around 3 years in my garden.

    Another similar example:

    I have a healthy Ukigumo but I planted it a few years back in a location that gets too much sun and so its foliage suffers by about mid to late July. But I noticed this past summer it did much better overall. I am thinking that with a more mature root system it is able to "withstand" more sun.

    30th April 2021 and I cannot believe how slow my Kamagata is to leaf out. This is all I have and it's Mayday tomorrow.

    I feel a bit naughty posting mine as after seeing yours, but it is meant in a positive way. Patience will bring you joy and beauty :-)

    Tbh Luke, I felt bad about posting it after R @dicky5ash calamity yesterday with his Kamagata.
    But I hope to show something better once this weather warms up.

    10th June 2021 and as it's cloudy and I'm going to miss the eclipse. I thought I would take a photo of my Kamagata to share, as it's doing well.
