23rd May 2021 and here are a couple of photos of my Summer Gold from a few minutes ago.
Finally decided to put this young 'Summer Gold' in the ground early spring. It did very well potted in full sun. It seem to be ok so far.
And it will do well in the ground D. This is a wonderful cultivar.
28th May 2021 and my Summer Gold in some early sunshine.
An intense little patch of Summer Gold:
And it gets better and better Xi. A maple that keeps giving !!
17th June 2021 and my Summer gold that has been baking in full very hot sun for the past several days was looking quite lovely IMO this morning.
30th June 2021 and two weeks of cool wet weather has not deterred my Summer gold at all. This cultivar doesn't mind whatever is thrown at at it.
My Summer Gold is looking quite pale in comparison, but to be fair we've hardly had a sunny summer so far!
Everyone should have this one in a collection. Yours is looking very pretty Xi.
Thank you, D, I quite agree! I've promised myself no more new green maples, so I'm branching out (ah-ha) and focusing more on the yellows, oranges and reds now. Summer Gold is definitely one of the best yellows out there, isn't it?
101% agree with you there Xi and sun tolerant as well, what more could one want from maple.
9th July 2021 and a morning of sunshine at last. So here is my Summer gold looking very bright and cheerful.
This is a lovely little tree, but I'm fascinated by the fact that it hasn't grown an inch all year - it looks exactly the same (other than some slightl colour changes) as it did in Spring!
Sometimes you just want to (gently) poke them and say "Hey! Do something!"
Early August, and not much movement from Summer Gold:
18th August 2021 and Autumn colours are now very evident. So early, but its been very cold and quite dark for the time of year.
