    3rd November 2020 and my Seiryu in the sunshine is a very special sight in my garden. Gives pleasure all year long tbh. But old leaves about to drop and new growth on one stem in November !!!! What a year.

    12th April 2021 and my Seiryu is now getting going. And when it starts this one can grow and grow and grow..... controlling it is a must for this cultivar.

    13th April 2021, yes just 24 hrs since my last posting and with an overnight hard frost, this is how my Seiryu welcomed me to my garden this morning. And people wonder why we are so passionate about maples !!!!

    4th May 2021 and I wanted to get a photo of mine after seeing N @D97x7 lovely specimen yesterday. Mine is only just starting, but this morning's early sunshine, gave me hope that it is really now underway. 'But so late'.

    11th June 2021 and into the time where so many feel that not much changes with maples. But I think they change continually, with new shoots spurting all the time.

    Got an email notification to check this thread, so decided to post some updated pics from the ones I posted a few years ago. Think this Seiryu is around 40+ years old. Enjoy it everyday. Almost lost it again last year to an ice storm. And about 3 years ago it got damaged quite severely by an ice storm. Still, it continues to grow, even through the heat dome etc. (which didn't seem to damage it any--lot's of bark mulch and leaves under it, at least 8 inches). It must be about 20-25 feet tall and a meter around at the stump. I'll post some pictures of some newer varieties I've planted a few years ago. I've got a 3 year old yatsubusa that is quite large and really enjoying it. Planted an Ever Autumn this year too, so very curious to see how that one turns out.

    I think the word Beauty is an understatement. I sooo like that Seiryu, it really is beautiful.

    My 'Seiryu' reminds me once again why I love it so well.

    I already posted this one in another thread, but it's the same kind of atmosphere as yours, Margot. Definitely a star of the garden ;-)

    Doesn't the light amplify the glowing leaves in both our gardens?
