    Anyone know the origin of this maple? How about some of the other vine maple cultivars showing up these days- Del's Dwarf, Sunny Sister? Branch sports? Seedlings?

    Del's dwarf was baught as a 1gallon Vine maple seedling , out of salem in the 70s' , Glen-del was a sport from a vine maple baught at Handy Nursery, from Glen Handy. so that is why it is named Glen-Del. Those are the Vine maples that my Grandad (Delbert Loucks) redgistered, He has also redgistered eral Japanese Maples, Lemon-lime-lace, Beni-kumo-no-su also known as Red spider web, Beni hoshi, Autumn fire, Laura's love, Emerald lace, Dad's best, and Aka kawa hime. I think pacific fire was a sport off of a vine maple from a nursery in portland, I will ask my grandad in the morning.

    The new maple book has 'Sunny Sister' coming from Talon Buchholz. No origination on 'Pacific Fire', though.
