    Thanks D, yes I will keep it but it has to be relocated. Right now it is very close to our back deck and it seems to be a very vigorous grower which can cause trouble with time. Perhaps next spring..

    D, it reminds me of the Black Lace cultivar that you recently posted, but on its own roots.

    If it's as dark as Black lace, then definatly a keeper. I do wish my camera would show how deep the colour is of Black lace, but digital photography washes it out quite a lot.
    Lift it carefully next Spring N.

    I collected, from a very very old tree. I'll try to find a pic of it.

    Lovely D, possibly the most talked about seedling in 2020 and probably this year so far..

    My griseum seedlings are just waking up. As for colors, nothing beats the freshly emerging first true leaves. For whatever reason, light this time of year, or something else, they are always spectacular, even if the mature leaves later on turn out to be a dull color.

    Totally agree D, the cotyledon leaves say to us, "We are here " and shortly after they show us who they are. Nature at it's best IMO.

    I haven't seen 'Vanity' here at all. TBH I think it's very similar to 'Candy Ice', but more variegated. 'Candy Ice' really shows it's vargiegation on the second flush, which gives it a look like candy icing!

    Are you grafting now D? If so I'll send you some scions of Brigada next winter. Otherwise I'm sure someone over there will be interested in grafting it soon enough, heh!

    BTW, A. mono is an obsolete name, for some time now it is A. pictum (poss A. pictum ssp mono, not sure about yours).

    Note taken on A. pictum. The very large (old) specimen at the Aronld is still labeled A. mono. I forget names change. Could my seedling be hybridized?

    I looked up 'Candy Ice' and I see what you are say. I absolutely agree.

    Yes they hybridize very easily with A. platanoides. Sometimes the seedlings from pictum really look just like a Norway Maple, other times they are very distinct. Luck of the draw!

    Guess I'll keep trying to get lucky then E. Lol

    E, I've been trying to graft. But haven't had anything to take and thats been summer grafting. I will keep trying until I get it right. I asked a friend that graft for help. So we will see how it go this year.

    Well they said it would be a frost, but it didn't really materialise, so here are some from a few minutes ago.

    As lovely as the photo shows it’s very very similar to Red Pygmy if you have that..strangely my Red Pygmy appears to be growing at a rate of knots..slightly defeats the purpose of the name
