My kotohime airlayer from last year thinks it's already spring and he gifted me some flowers...
Now that really is Spring I. The age of the trunk from the air layering certainly gives it so much character. You must be very pleased.
Yes D, seeing the flowers made me happy and it's the only tree that have fully opened leaves so it's pleasing as I hate winter.
Now I am checking every day all my trees in the garden hoping to see them bud break and fill the garden with wonderfull colors, I guess everyone is slowly guetting impatient aswell.
Impatient but very nervous, we have severe frosts forecast at the end of this week. I do hate it when those new little leaves get burnt. At least your Kotohime is in a pot so can be moved to a protected place.
Right, the frosts that can comeback till may are scaring and I agree it is a problem.
Three maples, each one at different level of growth.
Beauty comes in three, lovely photos I.
Thank you D, and sorry I have only 'hime' cultivars with leaves to show so far.
Not long now I and we will all have something to show. We are going to be battered by gale force wind and rain over the next few days, but after that it looks good for the Spring leafing out.
19th March 2021 and I have some leaves.
Great to see you have finaly some good leaves to make you feel and enjoy the spring D.
I was expecting to have night frosts for at least the next 3 or 4 days but it seems it was only this last night and here it should be safe for the next 2 weeks.
Glad you escaped it even if only a little I. Yes My Kotohime has cheered me up no end. I did take your advice and cover it last night. Thankyou
16th April 2021 and after -5° C last night and actually the worst of all the frosts over the past 7 -10 days, my Kotohime did OK. It still has the moisture on the leaves from my regular spraying.
That is a good news D,
Thanks I, and according to the forecasts that was the last frost. But you never know!!!!
I have two Kotohime that couldn't be more different. The little one looks to have a very 'classic' habit, but the big one.... who knows what's going on there. I've staked most of the branches recently as it was very weepy - let's see if that helps at all.
I wonder if no 2 is a Kotohime Xi ? Leaves look very different to a hime.
I wondered that too last year when I first received it, but I have no idea what it could be (it was certainly sold as a Kotohime, but who knows!) Might try posting some close-ups of the leaves in another thread at some point and see if anyone has any ideas...?
Good idea Xi. Someone might ID it for you.
I enjoyed the third picture very much.
Thank you for sharing.
Thank you! Even if it's - as we suspect - maybe not a Kotohime, it's a nice little thing all the same.
Yes very pretty leaves indeed and i agree it is not a Kotohime.
Those are words I like to hear Xi. What's in a name when the tree looks wonderful. What we do know is it's a maple... so that will do nicely.
I think we are all definitely in agreement there - isn't it fun?
Oh yes, always is Xi.
