    4th June 2021 and new growth is always pleasing to me, so I thought I would share it.

    Well I didn't expect to be contributing to this thread but I received a beautiful Sunset in the post yesterday, I didn't order it I ordered Higasayama lol. However after looking at this one yesterday and falling in love with the shape I've decided to keep it.

    Yes, I've asked for an invoice for this one and for the Higasayama to be sent as ordered. Just waiting to hear back.

    20th May 2022 and an often overlooked maple, but I think it deserves more notice. Turning towards Summer colours now....

    Totally agree D, it's a lovely cultivar that I'm surprised isn't more common.

    And the fireball of reds and orange that give it it's name, is wonderful in the Autumn. Perhaps we might see more on the forum in the future N !!?
