Back again, with pale spring leaves freshly emerging:
And it survived the frosts. Well done you.
Thank you - I was so worried about some of the 'big boys' I couldn't move into shelter but - touch wood - it seems to have weathered things despite the cold snap during the leafing-out phase. Let's hope the weather improves for all of us going into next week!
I'll second that Xi.
Koto no Ito now filling out. It is, bar none, the bigget aphid-magnet in my garden so I've given it a good spray and hopefully that'll keep the little blighters away for a few weeks:
Looks lovely Xi, I forgot to post these yesterday
Love to see a side by side shot with your Fairy hair N ?
No problem D.
Fairy Hair is a shade lighter, finer and a bit more curled, well it is at the moment.
Koto is more weeping with slightly larger leafs.
And of course they go a different colour in autumn, Koto goes yellow, FH goes red/orange.
Oh wow, this is super interesting to see - I hope you do some comparison pics at different times of the year, if you have time!
Thanks N, they are close atm as you say. But it is fascinating to see the side by side photos. Aren't they both amazing maples !!
Tucked in amongst some others, here’s mine from this morning:
What a start to the maples forum. Very pretty.
My Koto is having a major growth spurt this year and putting out some enormously long leaves.
Love that position on the edge of the lawn also N. And Wow, isn't it making some amazing Spring growth !!Very happy and healthy..
Put mine back in the ground eighteen months ago and it's flourishing now.
Koto no Ito looking quite happy at the moment. A subtle touch of colour at the tips of each branch.
Looks like a pixie or fairy forest. Love it.
The thin strappy leaves are special, of course, but I'm really enjoying the hints of colour of the thicker new growth at the tips:
That is a wonderful photo Xi.
It rained all night, and there were hundreds of raindrops suspended in Koto no Ito's fine leaves this morning. Try as I might, I couldn't capture them in a picture to do them justice...
Colour spreading on the extremities:
Moved home 2013.
Left all fab Acers behind in Wales UK
Now in a tiny garden in Perthshire. Scotland. UK but still wanted a few special favourites.
This is my Acer palmatum Koto no ito over the past few years. Autumn 2020/2022/2023
Mine stays in the shade, and is still green today.
Wow, that must have been difficult. Do you have a greenhouse at the new place?
Here's mine last year, haven't had a chance to look this autumn, but it had a lot of good seed on it this earlier. It lost a couple of limbs from last year's drought, but largely OK.
