    I just purchased this tiny little tree. It is only a start, but I thought it would be good to have the picture, since there aren't any on the site.

    That’s perfectly fine. I never know most of the time who is what gender on this site. Maples are loved by all! I still have this tree. I will post a picture of it as soon as I get outside and the light is better.

    Here are some photos of my Miwa. It has been pretty trouble free. Taking the photos this rainy morning I noticed that it has some girdling roots showing up. Will have to keep an eye on that and also it is getting pretty big to be up against the fence like it is. May have to transplant it if I can find a place this fall. The first 4 photos are of the tree this morning and the last is from last June showing the reticulation at that time. Glad that someone else has this! By the way, some people say this is very close to the "Tiger Rose" acer palmatum but I don't know how true that is.

    Totally agree C , gender ,race, age, orientation, etc etc, makes no difference in life, so definatly no difference in our friendly UBC community. We all love maples !! Perhaps a little too much at times though, lol.

    Look forward to seeing your updated photos, 5 years on.

    Good evening D, on that point I wonder if it's because men out number the women in the maple enthusiast world, or so it seems ?

    So delicate, it's lovely C. Btw, I know this is off topic but my wife asks, "what is the Hosta in the last photo ? Is it June" ?

    I am not sure. I remember I chose it because of the way the leaves are darker around the lighter center 75516E64-8A93-461C-A964-C348CB5BB0BD.jpeg but it looks like some of the new growth is reverting this morning. Do hostas do that I wonder.

    Oh yes they do C, if you want to stop the solid plain coloured leaves taking over, then remove them ASAP.
    Edit 1, as deep as you can C.

    Update:

    Here is 'Miwa' tonight. I had it in full morning sun until around 1pm. It did very well and stayed green, no burning. I might try more sun in the future.

    It's very interesting to see photos of this variety as it grows. My 'Miwa' keeps going and growing against a fence. When I planted it it was about 1 ft. tall and it is now over 6 ft. I am wondering if I should move it to a more spacious place if I had one (l0l). Buchholz Nursery which is the supplier of many small jms at the nursery I buy from says:
    "A compact upright deciduous form. Green leaves have subtle, but evident, reticulation which holds through summer. Spring growth can display yellow and pink tones as well. Name means "graceful beauty" in Japanese. Prefers sun/partial shade in well-drained soil. 6' tall x 3' wide in 10 years. Hardy to -20 degrees. USDA zone 5. Discovered and introduced by the Flora Wonder(tm) Collection of Buchholz Nursery."
    So I guess it is growing faster than I though it would. It is in morning shade and afternoon to evening partial sun. Miwa-6-21.jpg Its leaves look a little less robust than yours Acerholic. Miwa-Leaves.jpg

    Little Miwa when it arrived at the end of September, and the colour change into October. Hoping it survives the winter and does well next year!

    Miwa in spring, slower to wake up than many of my other maples... but definitely worth the wait:

    I feel I'm in a different continent to you Xi, not 70 miles up the M3 Lol. I look at your maples and get very impatient.
