    Hey D, not really. But this one did catch my eye because of the beautiful shades of green, leaf shape, structure.

    And with a green, it is going to be fantastic Autumn colours. The reds just can't match them once October is here IMO.

    Hi Lover of Maples. I will be able to post some photos in a couple of days. Traveling on the Oregon Coast. First trip since the pandemic began. We are getting to see our daughter after a year and a half. Trying not to look at any of the many Japanese Maple sellers around here! C

    Mon-zukushi-2021-closer.jpg Mon-zukushi-2021-leaves.jpg Mon-zukushi-2021.jpg Here are some photos of my Mon zukushi this spring. It had a bout with something--I think probably pseudomonas last summer near the base of the tree--it shows in the first photo. Have tried to pull some of the ground cover (sedum) away to give it some more air and sprayed it with copper spray. Looks like it is recovering. It has always been pretty sturdy, but maybe my pruning efforts (I cut a branch off near the base so it would have more of a narrow shape), have hurt it. We will see! Had a great time with our daughter and my husband managed to keep me away from any nurseries. Hope all is well on the East Coast! C
