    Acer palmatum Trompenburg began life as a chance seedling selected by J.R.P. van Hoey -Smith at the Trompenburg Arboretum in the Netherlands and introduced by the Esveld nursery.
    Now a very popular and rather unusual cultivar in any maple collection around the world. The lobes radiate laterally and evenly, giving the appearance of fingers extended from a hand. It also has a very ghost cultivar like look at certain times of the year.

    I thought I would show my photo from this morning 13th September 2020 individually, as an appreciation of how wonderful the leaf is on this special Acer.
