    Like everyone else, I find this a hard cultivar to capture with camera. I love my plant. Photo from 4/24/11

    My Villa Taranto, I think, not 100% sure as it was just labeled Linearilobum when I purchased it. One of my favourites though.

    The colors on one of my Villa Taranto looked good while others were pretty boring

    Here’s some more photos of my Villa Taranto with its deep red spring coloration. The leaves are strap like only on a few branches. My tree is now about 6-8’ high and wide. It’s had some dieback on outer branches the past two winters but seems to recover nicely. It’s probably going to become too large for the spot where I planted it but I’m hesitant to move it.

    Thought I'd update with my VT in it's current state, as it's looking pretty good right now. Sorry didn't clean up the various pots and junk hanging around! On the closeup the sun finally came out.

    This is my new Villa Taranto, I have had it in a sheltered position in a pot for two years now. It seems so delicate that I am nervous about planting it out too soon. I do prefer it to my Scolopendrifolium.
    These are my Spring photos 2020.

    I like the way the reddish colour on the wall brings out the same colour in the leaves.

    August 5th 2020 and my Villa Taranto has made some good growth this Summer. Don't expect much more now if any. Colour changes next.

    @D97x7, beautiful specimen. We have some very hot weather heading our way in a couple of days, looks like you have it well protected.
    Love to see photos of yours in the Autumn?

    This is the 10th August 2020 and still in the heatwave. This is my continuing diary of my maples throughout the Summer as requested.
    Well I'm very pleased with my Villa Taranto, the second photo was me trying to get a very close up of the leaf. Sorry if it's a little blurred.

    20th August 2020 and after days of rain after a heatwave, everything is picking up again. Severe storms coming tomorrow, so I hope I can batten down the hatches so to speak and protect my trees.
    I never find this tree easy to photograph, my camera seems to want to ignore the leaves of my Villa Taranto. But here it is today and doing rather well.

    25th September 2020 and some colours are more subtle than others. But that is the beauty of maples they are all so different and often the same tree is different year on year. This is why they are loved the world over. Again difficult to photograph, but I thought it was worth a posting.
