    Here you go - There’s a grower (wholesale only) based somewhere around Worcestershire that supplies Bonnie Bergman plus a load of others

    hey Alain, I’ve always noticed your Tsuma gaki is a lot greener than mine..mine has always been this pale yellow green..Ive seen similar pale leaves elsewhere..I wonder if there’s a couple of different strains..I know there is one other but I can’t recall the name

    Before the rain hits again, ( forecast all day today). Here are a few more of mine, with a very little Aureum that I thought I lost last year and had all the dead cut off in the Autumn. Looks like it's coming back.

    That's what I thought to, but from what I've seen on the web, and in Vertress and Gregory's book, Tsuma G. has leaves of a paler green than Tsuma B.

    Maybe the stock it's grafted on has an influence too...

    Hard to tell the difference if I'm honest with myself on these two. But that's my old eyes....

    Coincidentally I'm really happy you posted these two! I'm designing a new planting scheme for an area at work under some huge cypress trees providing dappled shade. There is already 3 very old maples nearby so I know they will survive there once established, but the estate is fairly exposed overall on top of a hill. I was looking for some tough cultivars and found this 'Jack Frost' series including both of these hybrids and thought they would be perfect for the location! Nice to see examples of some mature trees to get an idea.

    Our Kasagyama always gives a very warm soft peach tone at this time of year before eventually fading to more green tone's into the summer months. This is one of our oldest trees on our property.

    Mine is the same light yellow-green as yours, Rich. Burns like paper, and always looks terrible by July, but looks so pretty early. There are a few red tipped selections out there, I just got 'Tana' after many years of looking, and of course JMs naturally have reddish tips leafing out. So I think it's probable there is some confusion out there.

    Back after 8 days of absence, amazing how much and how fast our maples change during this time of year. If you blink, you miss it! A huge change in the garden, the lawn is out of control, but I haven't had much of a chance to go around and take new pics. We left on the first of May, here are some pics from before then. Should be labeled.

    The weather is wet and warm here in Southern England and no late Spring frosts this year, so everything is growing like mad. Took these photos a few minutes ago.

    'Koko' is amazing, very different in both texture and color, even the sheen is unusual throughout the season. Certainly one of the most interesting cultivars I've come across in a while! Hope you can get one, to show us how it's really supposed to look, haha.

    I'm documenting Orange Parfait as much as I can this year, though it was too bad to miss a week. It goes a really interesting olive green with cream variegation, a nice addition to the color palette I think. I got my greenhouse up!! So I'll be doing a couple of evaluation grafts of it this winter. The sycamores don't always keep their characteristics after being grafted.

    Here's more pics from before Mayday, taking a break from mowing the jungle while the thunderstorm passes.

    Still dripping out there, so here are the rest of the pre-mayday pics. There's one of our yellow 'Tsuma gaki' in this batch.

    Have found a seller of the Koko in Oxfordshire ( knew i had seen it some where) and they have it listed on their web site in stock so will probably give them a bell tomorrow and see if it's a viable purchase ??

    On a lighter note Emery seeing you are going to do some evaluation grafting you could try your chocolate curl with the parfait and who knows you could create a new cultivar. A chocolate and orange parfait works for me would buy this just for the name :) :) lol

    Before more rain this afternoon, griseum has come out to play at last, plus a few more from my garden.

    It'll be interesting to see what you get. Our Koko doesn't seem to be that similar to what is shown in Vertrees. but it wouldn't be the first time there was difference between European and US versions. Mine was grafted by Dick van der Maat.

    If the evaluations work out, I'll send you some plants of these, Mark! So far, Orange Parfait looks very small, and I was sure Chocolate Curl was going to be a dwarf. Until it decided, it didn't like that idea, haha.

    Thanks Otto! I decided to do some close ups this spring, as opposed to last year when I concentrated on "garden shots." With the huge flower crop, I get to photograph some never before seen (by me) species flowers, which is fun. It's actually just my phone: a recent Samsung, which I bought for the camera. Which is quite good, but unfortunately I dislike the phone for lots of other reasons: wonky touch screen, finger print sensor stinks, clunky user interface, etc. I was forced into the brand because it's the only one (aside from Apple, and don't get me started, lol) that supports wifi calling with our operator. We have no network, so that's the only way to have a working portable phone here.

    @Acerholic Derek that Paperbark has some of the darkest leaves I've seen on one! Very striking.

    2021 seedlings from an 'Atropurpureum dissectum'. It's amazing how different they all look, and most of them need a stake now. One of them has bright red new leaves :

    Comparison of the leaves from 3 self-sown Acer campestre.
    The one on the left is in full sun (it's the one with a cork-bark), very dissected;
    The second one get the sun most of the day, it's the kind that we found everywhere here;
    The third onre is mostly in the shade, and I took root-cuttings that have the same leaves :
