    What a fast grower! Nice tree for the spot too. I agree it looks like shirasawanum x palmatum.

    Yes, it has grown so fast.
    I am a bit worried it will overgrow that spot.
    I planted out an air-layer from this year in a place where it will have more room. Will eventually remove the crab apple from behind it.

    Spring and fall 2019. A very hard winter 18/19 and the tree damaged significantly.

    Hi @kbguess, seedlings do not get the attention they deserve. Lovely tree Keith.

    Fareham, Hampshire. Hi UK
    Wow, it has vigour. Just shows that when we plant
    a seedling, it’s final height is a complete unknown

    Probably will "dismantle" it piece by piece by layering.
    Going to outgrow its initial spot way too quickly.
    The location of the layer has plenty of room thankfully

    @Acerholic Thanks for the encouraging words
    I now have 6 layers from the tree that I have planted out in the yard. It shines this time of year
