    The leaves on my 'Peaches and Cream' had turned a dark green, with some kind of reticulation. After the rain, a new set of leaves has appeared on a branch :

    Neither have I, actually. I've had it for 4 years and I don't have photos of previous summer colours, but they looked more like on this one that was taken in mid-April last year :

    I got 2 little Peaches & Cream this year both have ended up completely losing all their leaves! They've been kept in the greenhouse but in complete shade and I've been really baby-sitting them so I'm not sure what's happened - maybe they just didn't like the heat even without any direct sun!?

    Never seen this much variegation on Beni tsukasa before. This one is in mostly shade and these leaves are several months old and showing the variegation more strongly as the season goes on.

    Olsen's Frosted Strawberry and Chishio (more likely to actually be Chishio Improved/Shin Chishio).

    A couple of older (matsumurae) seedlings that were up-potted last year after several years in the same pot. Strong second flush growth is evident this year.

    An older linearlobum seedling, strong second flush growth and older, lower leaves. (Edit: looks like there are some spider mites there in the last photo, didn't notice them in real life!)

    The same story with one of mine, Chris - full shade all day, plenty of water throughout this hot spell and still all the leaves have crisped up and it's looking very sorry for itself. Seems to be a cultivar that doesn't do well in the heat... I hope yours and mine both make it through this!

    Both have all but defoliated themselves but there are new buds coming through behind so hopefully it'll leaf out again in the next few weeks, if not I won't bother with peaches & cream again!

    That makes two of us. It's beautiful! Normally you get some Fu (sand sprinkle) on shaded inner and lower shaded leaves but nothing near what you have there.

    Believe it or not this tree gets big with age. Ours is 14' tall and 17' wide (4.2672m by 5.1816m) after its annual pruning. Still steadily growing, but its very old (purchased in 2014 as a specimen in a 45 gallon nursery cont). Because of the size it now gets full sun all day sun and much less Fu.

    Yes, the Fu is what I normally see. This one was air-layered off my bigger one which sees more sun and has never shown the "extra" variegation.

    The biggest one I have seen personally is at Westonbirt arboretum. It was probably a little bigger than yours several years ago but I haven't seen it recently to see how it has grown. It had an amazing pink show in the spring! Also got plenty of full sun but not all day like yours because of taller trees planted in adjacent areas. My old one is over 20 years old but only around 4' by 4' (1.2m x 1.2m) having been containerised its whole life - it can handle a few hours of direct sun but not all day, might be more resilient if planted in the open ground.

    Yes mine really took off a couple years after being planted.

    I've seen pictures of the one at Westonbirt Arboretum. What a pleasure that must be to see such a beautiful specimen in person, especially in peak Spring color! Mine gets that color some years when its very cloudy, but now that it gets more sun the pink fades quick and has more of a yellow with a pink cast to it.

    "Nolite spem amittere", like my latin teacher would say when giving me back my paper :

    In June some of my maples that were in full sun either began to get sun-scorched or had autumn (red) colours. So I put them in almost total shade.
    Most of them show a kind of recovery that I hadn't hoped.

    'Bi-hoo', June 18th and today (it gets some sun between 17:00 and 19:00) :

    acerp-bihoo_220618c.jpg acerp-bihoo_220726a.jpg

    More spectacular, 'Red Wine', June 18th and today, in almost total shade :

    acerp-redwine_220618b.jpg acerp-redwine_220726a.jpg

    A seedling that has leaves that ressemble the "amoenum" type. It was not the colour, but the leaves were beginning to get sun scorched :

    acerp-div-018_220506a.jpg acerp-div-018_220726a.jpg

    Nothing much to hope for the sun scorched leaves, when they are more 50% burnt, if you remove them, new leaves will appear, but I was surprised to see how the ones that had autumn colours could turn green again. It was the same with a Japanese apricot.

    A 3 year-old seedling that had lost all its leaves because of the heat, and sun, and probably "escaped" one day of watering. Placed in a more shaded area, it buds out again :

    Not sure how well these will come out having taking them in the dark this evening. Anyway, these are currently my favourite 2 seedlings from about 2 years ago, and also seem to be among the strongest which is nice!

    I've just seen some on a Facebook page (in French), and they all look mine.

    Mine looks almost like a flame against the dark foliage of other maples :

    I made my annual trip over to Credale nursery in Leominster yesterday. I had planned on buying 4 things and came away with 7, so not a bad result.
    Knowing that this nursery supplies the garden centre I buy from usually I know what I've saved buying direct - even after fuel for a 142 mile round trip - saved £160 roughly!

    Was hoping to get a bigger Emperor 1, but he only had a few small ones left.
    PXL_20220730_135256611.jpg

    Was also hoping for a larger Aureum as I know they grow very slowly.
    Also in this picture is a Sharon which I know nothing about, he only had about 3 young plants because his main Scion 'mother' tree is also not especially old and he hasn't been grafting them for very long. I'll be posting updates for this one in the photos thread as I see there is very little in there.
    The other one is a Mikazuki, one I'd seen a photo of ages ago but not seen for sale anywhere for over a year. Again he only had about 5 left and none of them looked especially happy. Decided to take a punt on one with some new growth and I'll put it somewhere more shaded.
    PXL_20220730_134946607.jpg

    Having given away a smaller one a few years ago, then looking around for a sun tolerant red maple, then looking at all of Derek's pictures/praise I decided to get another Skeeters broom!
    PXL_20220730_135110624.jpg

    For the front garden, full sun position by the house, and again having sold a big one to my brother in law last year I've decided to get another Atropurpureum. Luckily there were a few larger trees to choose from (£54 bargain!)
    PXL_20220730_134608494.jpg

    I hadn't planned on getting a Shaina, but there were loads and they all looked amazing. Really nice variation on colouration, it'll be going in a position that gets full sun from 4/5pm onwards.
    Having read through the Shaina thread in the forum I can only hope mine proves to be a bit tougher than it's reputation suggests!

    Some random simmer pictures taken over the last week or so. Most of the garden is pretty grim, but some maples are resisting.

    Beni tsukasa, really variegated here too. Maybe the heat is the cause?

    For some reason, the stem on Bi hoo is very green. Never seen this before

    My Bi hoo bark is lime green too - how odd!

    Judging by my example, I think the summer bark colour of Bi hoo is related to sun exposure. This year mine has been placed against an East facing wall so gets full strong sun all morning until about 1pm. There is a big difference in how much sunlight each side of the trunk has been exposed to and this is reflected in the bark colour:

    And the younger branches higher up:

    I think you’re spot on..mine doesn’t get any direct sun..just dappled.. I’ve not had any dieback since it’s been in its current location, so i think I’ll leave it where it is.

    Hi everyone!
    I'll be glad to share photos of some of my maples!
    I'll be grateful for identification!
