    These two trees were bought as A P Dissectum but have since read that most green unnamed dissectums come under the name viridis so can I call these A P Viridis ? anyone help?

    Acer Palmatum "Viridis"

    Here are two pictures of a "Viridis" taken a couple of days ago. This tree was purchased last year and must be at least 5 years old.

    'Viridis' (Viride Group) is not clonal, two specimens could differ in some what yet still have been introduced under the same name ('Viridis').
