    5th May 2023 and the one good thing about a cooler Spring, is that the delicate leaves do sooo much better. Here is my Momoiro koyasan this morning very happy Indeed.

    Thanks

    Other (mostly Japanese maples) there on the benches are a Deshojo, Beni Chidori, Beni Maiko, a group planting of I don't really know what, Kotohime, Acer Campestre, Acer ginnala and a Katsura. You have to find them - that's the challenge.

    Are you sure it's Momoiro koyasan ? The reticulated aspect of the leaves makes me wonder... To me it looks more like Phoenix.

    Absolutely stunning Jerry!! Is this grafted? If it is, it's very well done.

    It was a grafted tree which I bought as a garden plant from the actual patent holder in Holland - Dick van der Maat in Boskoop.

    When I repotted it I discovered that it had rooted at the graft point and had perfectly formed radial roots:

    Here's a complete album of photos of this tree over the last 10 years - including shots from the day I bought it at the nursery:

    Good luck. When I spoke with DIck v/d Maat - he actually mentioned Mr. Maple - you might try them.

    Also - if you can't find momoiro koyasan - a deshojo or a beni maiko is a very nice colour.

    Thanks! Yes, they carry it so I'm sure it will become available again soon.

    Yeah, I collect most of those spring interest maples. I have a lot of projects going on! lol

    Mine has almost turned to green now...

    Photos of March 21st, and 29th. Not as orange as in the second photo, different time of the day, and different light. It's more "salmon" on the edges :

    That's what 500 miles further south will do....it is great to see the differences around the world for cultivars we have.

    It is ! Some 26°C yesterday,
    "Only" 24 today, but back to normal from tomorrow, about 15 in the afternoon.

    (You probably have noticed that I'm this kind of person that's always humming a tune. When reading "500 miles", it instantly triggered a melody in my head... 500 miles, 500 miles, ... etc --Peter, Paul and Mary)
