My thread "Acer palmatum 'Crippsii' " explains that for a decade or two a plant has been sold under that name which is not a linearilobum hence cannot be A. palmatum 'Crippsii' whose provenance is well known. I attach pictures of such an imposter, a 2005 plant at SHHG. In the leaf picture there are two types - the type with curled edges, rather in the right background, is actually the more typical. I look forward to suggestions as to what the misnamed plant(s) may be. The curled edges seem to be a common feature of (incorrect) literature and on-line. The third picture was taken 2 October 2012 - in July 2013 the curled leaves (perhaps 95% of all the leaves) were < 40mm long x 30mm wide, divided to within 5mm of the base, with lobes < 5mm wide. List of misnomer propagators * http://www.duncananddavies.co.nz/Main.asp?ID=5208&page=1&Genus * Maples for Gardens: A Colour Encyclopedia C.J.Van Gelderen , D.M.Van Gelderen (I believe it illustrates an imposter at Savill Gardens) * http://www.esveld.nl/engels.php also illustrates Savill Gardens imposter. But go to the new site today (21JUL13) and search for 'Acer palmatum 'Crippsii' ' and you get a page which does not show 'Crippsii' but does show 'Okushimo'; however I respectfully suggest they are still wrong since, for example, the height is small (1.5m ?) whereas 'Okushimo' can be several times that?
