    Ahahaha Keith, you made my day with that! I'm not going to say 'it's a woman thing', but..... it might be a woman thing (at least where plants are concerned....!)

    My Westonbirt Orange this evening. The shape of the tree and layering of leaves with a tinge of orange on the new growth is stunning. One of my favourites.

    Those leaves look like they're on fire Dan. Amazing colours.

    @Ghost74, Hi Dan can I ask how close your pink passion is to Shirazz in colour and variegation ?
    There are similarities that I can see from your photos, but as you have one, you have all the info at hand.

    I don’t have Shirazz but I have heard it’s very similar to Geisha gone wild, (if not identical) which I do have, although very young. There are certainly similarities. My GGW is in the foreground of the photo. What surprised me about “Pink Passion” is how bright pink it leafs out and stays pink. If anyone likes pink Acers, “Pink Passion” is certainly worth a go. It’s certainly one of the most commented on by visitors to my garden.

    I agree, subtle colours, but it’s the beautiful leaf shape and the layering that makes it such a winner for me. Part of the issue I think is it’s subtle green nature and boring name!
