    The 'dull boy' continues to make me eat my words:

    Clearly we need to study further the effects of verbal abuse and namecalling on Japanese maples: they become determined to prove us wrong!

    The dull boy has put out enough new growth that I'm trying to stake and guide that shape - if he puts out a similar show next year once he's bigger he should be a sight to see:

    I find this cultivar has the most delicate of leaves. Needs so much protection from the sun. But worth having when you look at that new growth.

    Oh that's definitely the case - I have both mine under an acrylic rain-awning so they never get anything but filtered sun (and even that for only a few hours in the morning) and they love it, but now we've found the 'golden spot' there's no way I can move them anywhere else in the garden!

    It can take years to find that perfect place for a maple, but when you do, then that's it. It stays there, no matter what !!

    Maybe too early to really show the peach colour, but a very delicate green and it has some flowers :

    3rd April 2022 and the forecasts says no more frosts on the horizon. So I'm hoping my Peaches and Cream will be OK. It is a delicate cultivar in my garden.

    It's looking wonderful N. And people say they can't tell tne difference between this cultivar and White peaches. Those pink beautiful finger tips of yours says it all.

    I find this cultivar very susceptible to the sun. Glad to see some shade there Xi.

    3rd May 2022 and here at last. It struggled this year with the cold dry Spring. But hopefully all systems go now !!

    10th May 2022 and Peaches and cream really would like some rain on the leaves. It is a delicate cultivar where I am in Southern England.

    After such a promising start mine is in a sorry state as well D, to be honest I don't think I should have potted it up, it seems to be alive though so fingers crossed.
    Oh, and the rain is on the way, just started here.

    The drying winds has not helped this delicate cultivar at all N. Let's hope this little bit if rain will refresh those leaves.
