Ornatum or Brocade?

Discussion in 'Maples' started by Unregistered, May 24, 2004.

  1. Ornatum vs. Brocade

    I have a tree that seems to be either Ornatum or Brocade, from all the research I've done. (Dissectum; spring color bronzy orange, greeing out during the summer, red in fall; new bark light yellow-green (which seems to be the most remarkable trait). Can anyone tell me distinguishing differences between the two cultivars? (Some pictures of "Ornatum" look just like my tree, but some show dark red petioles instead of light green ....)
    Thank you!

    my brocade always has gold petioles...so maybe its an ornatum brocade
    should be redder anyway.
    Although im not entirely sure since my ornatum is quite young and small
    (grow already!)
    i figured id give it a shot since apparently no one else will..

    This thread was merged from two duplicate posts, so each of the replies to unregistered above was originally made in separate threads.

    I usually catch these and delete one to prevent two separate discussions. Thanks for pointing this out Andre.
