    I haven't posted this before as it's very small, but I wanted to get a thread going to post the new leaves that have just opened in the last 48hrs. Also for D @LoverOfMaples, as we talked about it a few days ago on the forum.
    This is a compact tree with very small leaves, so will suit a patio in a pot etc etc.

    More updates over the coming years to follow.

    Nice D. So this the one. They do look similar. I can't wait to watch it progress.

    After talking on the forum yesterday (12th May 2021) about my Karasugawa, I thought I should add an update on how this little one is progressing.

    14th July 2021 and an update on my Karusagawa after a very wet start to Summer. I'm very pleased with it.

    12th April 2022 and my variegated Karasugawa is underway. If you like these types of maple, then I thoroughly recommend this cultivar. So much interest all season long.

    30th April 2022 and I was asked about the variegation and if it was stable. So I thought I would post a photo to show if it is. Not bad IMO.

    14th June 2022 and an update on my Karusagawa as it's getting rather warm now. Not too bad IMO. But I do give it a lot of shade.
