13th August 2020 and the heatwave has now taken it's toll. New growth and old all suffering. But as promised I'm adding these photos to show how cultivars cope at different times of the year and in different conditions. Some definatly not pretty, so have not put them on the Cheering ourselves up with maples thread !!!! This is where they should be. My Mikazuki is such a pretty maple, but the heat has now almost completely destroyed the leaves. Defoliation in next few days !!
