I really love growing JM seedlings, although most of them die on me. At some point I'll get it right! Anyway, the appeal is the prospect of something unusual and wonderful, but it requires a bit of patience, and - of course - a good seed source. That said, I have a few nice seedlings that made it through the winter. The first pic is of four seedlings from Moofire I collected and grew last year. This illustrates the variability you see in seedlings from the same parent. Each one has a slightly different degree of lobe division and "toothiness", to say nothing of the obvious color difference of one of them! The second pic is a flat of Acer pseudosieboldianum seedlings from seed I collected at Iseli nursery's display garden this past fall. These are beautiful, mature trees on the edge of the parking lot in the back, and are surrounded by JMs of all types and descriptions. Although its too early to tell for sure what the mature leaf will be like, the dissected seedling in the center has exciting possibilities! If you have some interesting seedlings, post a few pics.
