    I bought this beautiful small tree from the Haskell nursery in 2005 (the year after Allen died), and the tag said "reticulata" --I am hoping someone will recognize it and know the name of he cultivar. Thank you.

    Trying again to include the two photos omy unidentified Acer. IMAG0122.jpg

    Re: Acer palmatum 'Peaches and Cream'

    I hadn't submitted a post to UBC forums in a while, and just after I submitted my query re: my "unidentified Acer" from Haskell Nursery, the thread on the Forum for 'Peaches and Cream' appeared on my screen. I had explored the possibility of P&C for my tree, but the P&C lobes are much longer, and in fact the entire leaf is larger. Also, my tree does not show pink in the spring, only the light and dark chartreuse variation.

    MANY thanks for the link, and I'm fairly certain that you are right. In fact, there it is in my copy of Vertrees and Gregory --under my nose! Thanks again.

    What kind of soil have you got?

    Have not had it tested but everything here grows exceedingly well, mainly because I mulch heavily with rotted leaf mulch enriched with rotted horse manure --has worked wonders for more than 20 years.

    Thanks. There is some bark also, right?

    One possibility is 'Shigitatsu sawa', this has often been sold as 'Reticulatum' in the past.

    Edit: never mind, question already answered in another thread.

    Edit2: merged all the posts about this maple into one thread, it was a bit off topic in the 'Peaches and Cream' gallery posting.
