    This new one for me is Acer palmatum 'Mystic jewel '; I received it this morning and tbh when opening the box I was a little disappointed. Having said that after further inspection I do love the shape of the leaves and IMO it shows great promise. Only time will tell.
    I will, update this thread over the coming years as to it's progress in vigor,colouring and positioning regarding sun or shade etc.
    Here are my first two photos.

    I love the leaf shape as well @Acerholic. Seems like I will have to watch yours due to the distance and availability. Keep with the updates my friend.

    OK, after discussing and comparing our new acquisitions with @Luke’s Maples. thought I would update my photos. After just a few weeks of care and attention the true beauty is starting to show on this lovely cultivar. Hopefully Luke will add his.

    26th August 2020, the day after a very strong storm. (Francis). An update as requested. So many amazing colours now, but my new Mystic Jewel has fared rather badly. I thought it was important to show this as not every maple shown on the forum is a success.
    It will come back next year with a lot of care. This does happen to maples when they arrive from another location from time to time. They go into shock, so nothing to panick about.

    Hi Derek, very nice indeed, not surprised you’re happy. Mine seems to be doing quite well too. I’ll take a couple of pics of the whole plant and then of the leaves

    Bonjour à tous!
    Ceci est mon premier message sur le forum!
    Passionné par les érables du Japon, voici quelques photos de mon "Mystic Jewel" non greffé (je pense)
    J'observe que c'est une variété tardive. (débourrement mi-Mai)
    Cette année il a fait des pousses de 90cm! surprenant!!!
    Acheté chez Maillot Bonsai en Octobre 2020.

    I don't think it's a hybrid, it's a 2015 obtaining that comes from the Netherlands and that I bought from Guy Maillot (he told me that he will quickly reach 4 meters in height) it's a JM unique because its leaves in spring have the velvet appearance.

    I understand your question: the leaves reminded me of Acer elegantulum, which is also in the group "Palmata"...

    I can certainly see where you and @AlainK are coming from, I nearly posted this exact same question the other day. Well, actually, I was going to ask if the cultivar was a misidentified Chinese species in section Palmata or a hybrid between a Chinese species and a Japanese one. It literally screams "not Acer palmatum" at me when viewing the pictures, lol.
