    15th April 2023 and a new one for me for this year. Acer truncatum 'Volcano'
    I will update the thread as often as I can to show this new tree to the maples forum.

    Just leafing out this morning.

    Absolutely not, it will be great to compare over the years for this new maple. Hippo ?
    Yours looks fantastic.

    So, 'Volcano' leafs out more yellow, is that correct?
    What about the summer colours?

    Well mine seems to have but as it's only just left the poly tunnel I can't say for sure that it'll be the same next year. Summer colour looks to be light green with orange/red new growth on top, hence the volcano name I assume,
    Edit
    Actually I think the initial spring leaf out is also orange/red, I missed that though for this year

    Not sure yet Alain, but Hippo said yellows and orangy reds, so should look good

    Didn't realise just how much this had grown until I looked at my above photo, definitely the star grower of 2023.

    Definitely a fast grower N. Think we might have to control this one Lol.
    Yours looks wonderful with that background.
    I'll take a quick pic of mine between the rain showers and post later.

    After a lot of overnight rain my Volcano deserved a close up of its leaves.

    Yes agreed, it does have the ivy appearance. It's a new one for me this year, so I will see how it goes. So far so good tbh.

    I got it from Hippopotering maples. So you might be able to add it to your collection?
    It does seem a very fast grower. A bit like ivy ...lol

    Mine are the plain species and are still very green so far : they seem to stand hot and dry weather quite well, contrary to other species like palm/oenum or shirasawanum.
