    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!
