    Think I'll start a Summer colours thread after seeing your Sister Ghost Xi. You are having a very good maple year indeed.

    What a good idea, D! The conditions have been pretty good for the trees so far this year, haven't they - let's hope that continues during the most difficult summer months ahead!

    12th June 2022 and my Sister Ghost in a lot of shade. This is the best position for this one to protect it in the Summer.

    5th November 2022 and as it's been such a mild Autumn so far, my Sister Ghost thinks it's Spring already.

    This is probably my favorite of the ghost series. The light green really stands out in a shady spot.

    I really love that leaf color. Is that your Skeeters Broom next to it? Great contrast.

    Sister ghost looking almost white over the spring this year. Pruned and well shaded over the winter time.
