I find 'Mirte' to be a very nice shaped tree with a bit unusually brown green leaves.
Re: Acer palmatum 'Mirte'
Good Autumn colour too, Westonbirt Arboretum:
Introduced by Firma Esveld, Netherlands.
here is another view of the tree. Last fall I had a different Mirte and it had a great yellow fall color.
here is the fall color.
Here are some photos of the tree fall 2011
I added Mirte to my garden this year. it is a tree which does not draw much attention durning most of the year. It is starting to brighten up in sept
13th October 2020 and mine has just been ordered. Not big by any means, but am very excited.
Just for you Derek :) Mr Mirte today in the gloom and rain.
@ROEBUK thankyou M. An absolute stunner, that's the way to brighten up a gloomy day. Hopefully my new one will be like that in a few years.
It just arrived, 15th October 2020 and very well packaged as you would expect from Hippopottering. It is small, but thats OK, very pretty leaves and I hope it's as good as M @ROEBUK when it grows up !!!
16th October 2020 and a better close up photo of my new Mirte. Fascinated to see how this one goes over the next few years.
8th May 2021 and my first pisting of my Mirte for this year. This cultivar is showing great promise and it's going to be a firm favourite in my garden.
20th May 2021 and an update on my Mirte. You can now see why this is so popular amongst collectors.
My supplier have this one listed under shirasawanum. I've also found other sites with shirasawanum but nothing mentioning it being a hybrid. I'll keep doing research. But for now here is my 'Mirte'.
Different leaf to mine D, I would agree yours is a shirasawanum. But still very nice.
I will start a new thread in the shirasawanum section D. If I create the thread could you move it?
Of course D.
This looks like another one of those "found in a famous nursery" cultivars that are crosses between shirasawanum and palmatum, or vice versa. Known for hairy leaves in spring which is a shirasawanum characteristic, not palmatum or even amoenum.. Similarly 'Sensu' and 'Trompenburg' have recently been mentioned in the forum. Which gives me an idea...
Sounds intriguing M !!
Nah, not that interesting, just going to suggest it to that fellow in Canada with an unknown shirasawanum cultivar.
My Mirte today just coming out of the chocolate spring leaf stage and slowly moving into it's olive green leaf stage.
Mirte from last fall 2021 the colours were very vibrant last year , one of my favourite maples , had this now for numerous years just keeps looking nicer each year.
You and Charlie @amazingmaples have the best two Mirte's I have ever seen M.
27th April 2022 and this is one I really look forward to opening up.
