    25th May 2021 and I love the way this maple is just so very laid back in appearance.

    It's going through an ugly phase while it's being staked (it wants to weep; I want it to go UP) but the leaves are still quite pretty:

    The training phase is always a difficult one, but kudos to you Xi for sharing photos of it at this stage.

    It's filled out quite a lot since last year - hoping that I can remove the stakes soon-ish and leave it to its own devices. We shall see!

    Agreed Xi, but training can be quite artistic as well. Kyoto has shown that very well.

    My two from this morning , the potted one 50ltr had for 12 years bought as a small 8ltr and just kept growing on in a pot over the years quite a good grower. Then the larger ground one just keeps getting bigger , took lots of the inner branching out last year to help with the outer growth , certainly done the trick much akin to the large dissectums you have to keep removing die back to encourage the outer new growth , gets very inner light starved when they are in the ground. Takes something special to look better than one of these come the fall.

    Looking beautiful M and some excellent advice. I do think this is a very underrated maple, because as you say, wait till Autumn........

    Still being trained, but happily it's put out so many leaves over the spring that the stakes are not quite as distracting. Another few years and this will be a super fun tree!

    Our Omure Yama was planted around 1997, but Leylandii trees above it eventually shaded it out. This photo was taken in August 2016 after the Leylandii were removed. (Two Bloodgoods to the right were also suffering.)

    Since then I’ve been training and selectively pruning to restore its beauty. The second photo is how it now looks as of October 2022. It now grows like mad—multiple feet per year—which greatly helps the renovation effort. It takes frequent light pruning to keep it under control, but I enjoy it. The back side of the tree hasn’t filled in quite as much as this, but it will be there in another year or two.

    We discovered this multitrunk tree while visiting the Madrona district of Seattle. The leaves appear to be an Omure Yama, although it doesn’t seem to weep as much. I expect our tree to eventually reach a similar size. If you are considering Omure Yama, make sure it has plenty of room to stretch out over the decades!

    You can cut these back for fun but they just keep growing back, do mine every two years mainly in the centre where the light is starved more. Few pics of mine from this week well in colour at present.
