    I don’t recall seeing red on Koto no Ito previously - this one only gets morning sun..weird!

    It looks like a stress colour change, but I can see why it would be stressed! IMG_2518.jpeg

    Autumnal R ?? This weather has resulted in shorter days with all the cloud cover.

    Metamorphosia is looking much better this year. I thought the small one I had first that had severe dieback had died but i randomly found it amongst a load of pots..that looks better too!

    The photos were taken in Legoland Windsor yesterday. The red dissectums are doing very well under full sun. I like the bright red trees, and wonder if anyone knows what they are?

    Hi,

    It is A. oliverianum. They're sometimes quite thin lobed, and we have several labeled from the seed exchange that are identical to yours.

    Thanks Emery,

    On FB, someone suggested Acer oliverianum subsp. formosanum. I had a look of photos online and I think that's it.
    In the list established by the Maple Society, if I read correctly, the accepted name is now:
    Acer serrulatum Xu et al. 2008 (Number 1208 in the list)

    Thanks Derek - it’s pretending to be Como this year!

    I’ve not had to water any of my potted plants for weeks we’ve had so many regular drenching down pours. I don’t remember a year where we have reached mid August without at least a few crispies here and there

    A very good year for maples in the UK. Let's hope for lots of colour this Autumn.

    Maples in a park. Facing full south, with gravel or bricks or cement on the ground, very bad choice of exposure.
    Anyway... ^_^

    The one that looks like a big bonsai :

    ParcFlo_230815i.jpg

    An Acer campestre. It looks slender, but it's at least 10 metres tall (30 ft, 10 yards or so) :

    ParcFlo_230815m.jpg

    Waterlily, nenuphar (Monet called them by their scientific name : "Les Nymphéas") :

    ParcFlo_230815h.jpg

    Sequoiadendron and boomer in a cheap hawaian shirt, Sequoia sempervirens, woman and dog :

    ParcFlo_230815k.jpg ParcFlo_230815j.jpg

    Neither are endemic. I mean the the trees.

    But in many gardens and parks, there are trees from oversea that were planted in the 19th century, some earlier.

    'O-sakazuki'. Still green except on a few branches :

    'Redwine'
    Like 'O-sakazuki', the red leaves are on a weak branch, you can see the scar from a twig that was pruned :

    acerp-redwine_230828a.jpg

    Acer truncatum - "Shantung maple" :

    acer-trunc-sem_230828a.jpg acer-trunc-sem_230828b.jpg

    The samaras of 'Trompenburg' point upward :

    I have this 2-yr-old seedling with leaves that have 5 leaflets making a star, each one about 72° :
