    Hi all, I am Lorri, live in Tasmania and stumbled on this site when trying to find out my plants name, and how to prune them.
    They are in small pots and I want to plant them out in the garden, they are all under 5 foot tall and little branches crossing over etc. When I bought them the guy just called them JM, I didn’t realise there were so many types. So help would be great.
    Cheers

    It's very difficult to identify Acer palmatum cultivars, especially in Autumn. Yours look a lot like the type, Acer palmatum palmatum, especially since they don't seem to be grafted : if they were grown from seeds, depending also on their exposure to the sun, the type of soil, etc. there can be slight variations in the Autumn colours.

    Maybe next spring (next Autumn for us), when it buds out it will be easier to have a better view of the characteristics of the tree.
