    Looks like Mr. Maple has 'Kamisaka Nishiki' available today. At least that is how they are spelling it.

    Looks like a beautiful maple, but it seems to be a large grower at 1' a year. I simply don't have room for it with already having a similar 'Hoshi Yadori', 'Naguri Nishiki', 'Usugumo'. .

    I could replace a hybrid truncatum 'Crimson Sunset' since it is very similar to the overplanted 'Crimson King' . But I think I will have to pass on this one. I wish I had a bigger yard.

    I hope you get one @LoverOfMaples !

    I have one secure with a Pinus parviflora 'Goldilocks' @Worldly_Wrangler. I have all four and cant wait to see what they have hiding in Area 51. Im gonna try to slow things down a bit this year myself.

    I have a 'Goldilocks' in my back yard. Very pretty gold tips to the needles. I also recommend pinus contorta 'Chief Joseph' if you don't have one. Its my favorite of my conifers.

    Unfortunately the tree died after minimal new foliage this spring :(

    I hate to hear that Keith. Now that I'm thinking, I lost mine late spring.
