    Ornatum being quite happy in its new spot: I have it sitting beneath my Koto no Ito and love the contrast between them:

    5th May 2022 and now fully in leaf. Some people say that this cultivar is all, about Autumn, but I disagree. It is an all season maple IMO.

    I got my Ornatum last year in late summer and wasn't altogether impressed with the colours, but I must say it's been a stunner this spring. This is definitely the season for it!

    22nd May 2022 and a close up of the leaf on my Ornatum. This shows how it transforms throughout the season.

    Still keeping that strong colour - it definitely likes the spot it's in this year!

    17th June 2022 and not the colours of Spring that's for sure, but I do love the transition into Summer and Autumn with this cultivar.
