    Not avery good year for colours here, so when I see the sun going down and illuminate the leaves, I get out with my camera! ;-)

    'Rainbow', 'Seiryu', and 'Koto no Ito' :

    Rather unusually dotted leaves on Acer buergerianum :

    acerb-semis221112a.jpg

    'Redwine' :

    acerp-redwine_221112a.jpg

    'Atropurpureum', 6th november and 12th November :

    acerp_atro01_221106a.jpg acerp_atro01_221112a.jpg

    'Okushimo" : it stayed in full sun most of the season. The older leaves, at the bottom, are turning yellow.
    The new shoot was about 75% of the tree before leafing out, the height almost doubled. The leaves on the new shoots were a bit bigger, and not curled in.

    Just for the fun : when friends come to my place and see this tree they wonder what it is. A lot of them say "Acer dissectum of some sort". What do you think ?

    I've seen this leaf somewhere. Beech maybe?

    Thanks for playing the game.

    But it's not a beech, not a Fagus sylvatica 'Asplenifolia'... ;0)

    Hint : the species likes river banks...

    @Acerholic really love that pure yellow on 'Ukon', I might have to get one of those!

    @AlainK is your tree not a silver maple? I just gave away one quite a lot like that.

    A few more from me this morning. The weather is changing tomorrow with wind and rain, so the leaves will disappear quickly.

    LOL, I even know this one. Tried to get hold of it once, long ago, for a wet place.

    Colors are looking good Alain! Wind and rain coming tomorrow, I believe. Have just been out getting some pics as I expect it will mostly blow bare.

    But in the thread still working on pictures from last week, on the 7th and 10th.

    Mikawa yatsubusa, A. flabellatum v. yunnanense, Ariadne looking dark, a Norway and dwarf Japanese maple just starting to turn

    This red linearlobum seedling defoliated completely, the came back some. Now going red before losing leaves again
    20221107_124926_v1.jpg

    Two view of O kagami, just starting to shade, with Pixie in the 2nd photo. All just starting to go on the 7th. The bg maples are a well growing A. palmatun, and a very upright cappadocicum 'Aureum'

    Variegated seedling, rufinerve 'Albolimbatum', Adèle's leaf bouquet

    'Demi sec', rather orange although the photo isn't great, and 'Utsu semi' starting to turn the interior leaves. All of the exterior leaves have long fallen off.

    More colours while they last.

    Acer elegantulum. The top leaves are gone, but some of the lower leaves are still there, a few of them green, a couple of them dark red ("lie-de-vin") :

    acer-eleg_221114a.jpg acer-eleg_221114b.jpg

    Acer discolor, the pink one in the gang. Green and red leaves of palmatums in the background, various junk too...

    acer-discolor_221114a.jpg

    Acer palmatum seedling. Like one of my 'Orange dream", it has a yellow centre and dark red lobes. As nice as a fractal... ;°)

    acerp-div_221114a.jpg

    Acer laevigatum is still green :

    I didn't get around to separating the Senkaki seedlings in summer as planned, but they look healthy enough, and nice autumn colour:

    We had biblical rain yesterday and through the night... But woke up to some lovely Autumnal sunshine. So managed to get a few more photos for the thread.

    The red is on! Spectacular colours this morning, but I'm afraid they won't last long. It started to rain after lunchtime, and it's going to be windy tomorrow.

    'Redwine' (in the bottom left, 'Tama hime' which is still dark green):

    acerp-redwine_221116a.jpg

    'Orange Dream' :

    jardin_221116a.jpg acerp_orangedream00_221116a.jpg

    'Shishigashira' :

    acerp-shishi_221116a.jpg

    'Flavescens', that never really "flavesced" but shows nice colours on the remaining leaves :

    acerp-flavescens_221116a.jpg

    'Trompenburg' :

    acerp-tromp_221116a.jpg

    'Atropurpureum'. The red leaves with grey tips are those of 'Rainbow'.
    The dark red leaves in the bottom-right are those of 'Purple Ghost', still too small to take photos at this time of the year :

    acerp_atro01_221116a.jpg

    'Koto no Ito'. I love the green leaves contrasting with the finer ones that are orange :

    acerp-kotonoito_221116a.jpg

    And -echhh, it's one of my favourite in spring, but either the leaves are scorched, or they get leaf-spot. 'Tsuma gaki'.
    Like 99% of my maples, it's potted, so I can play on repotting and adapting the mix and finding the right place for it. Plus copper-spray... :

    acerp-tsuma-gaki_221116a.jpg

    I wouldn't like to finish this message with such ugly leaves, so here's my 20+ year-old bonsai that I kept in the shade this year :

    Beautiful.

    We, maple enthusiasts, can wait for months to see our trees display their best in a week, in a few days... ;°)

    I guess the pics in the last post were from the 9th, because on the 10th we had some mixed sun and I took more pics, including some of the potted maples.

    I'm really starting to run into the limitations of my "new" (as of a year ago) phone/camera: all digital cameras apply filters -- by their nature, the concept of #nofilter is nonexistent -- and it's up to the user to get the most realistic picture possible. (At least that's the hope). But the camera changes the filtering as it changes the lens, (which it does at different zoom ranges), so that at certain settings it takes much truer pictures than at others. This leads to really uneven filtering, which is really hard to fix even with post processing, since every pic has different levels. Too time consuming, really, anyway. Basically it has the tendency to wash out reds and make them pinker/violet, and turn oranges into reds. If the light is strong it deals with oranges better.

    Apologies, playing with watermark settings, the ID got too large on this batch. (I'm adding these to photos that are resized for sharing now, since it can be made automatic).

    Seedling from Shinjuku in Tokyo (all of the Japanese seedlings are very colorful). A. pictum v. marmoratum f. dissectum, that's what it says on the tin. 'Koko', autumn color not what I expected.

    'Barrie Bergman' is a very promising maple, but the thin leaves make it difficult to photograph.

    It really is spectacular in autumn, and most years the entire maple is like this. It gets a little shade from some birch trees, but apparently not enough for this year, it's already lost some of the top and may lose a bit more.

    To answer your question, no! I see a little variegation during the year, but it's very minor; whether it would really be considered reverted or not, I can't say. It may have been a little more variegated when young. They are known to revert easily and permanently. But in autumn you can really see the variegation in the color mix on individual leaves.

    I got this one as a little graft in 2008, planted in 2010. It's been a good grower.
