    Here just the barest few have leaves left. Pictures taken 2 days ago, 30th November.
    Deshojo nishiki, the variegation is sometimes more visible in the fall colour:

    Seed grown palmatum, multistemmed:

    I expect so. I think 'Mirte' is pretty much recognized as a hybrid with A. shirasawanum these days. I probably bought mine as a palmatum also, and I do have it that way in the DB.

    @maf I looked up 'Deshojo nishiki', didn't know that one. Is the variegation very visible? Certainly is pretty in the splotchy colors.

    Yano says "the variegation is not showy" and I would agree with him. I am going to add the fall colour pictures to the cultivar gallery thread which should bring it back to the top. There are already pictures in that thread from last year showing the leaves through the year from May to September. Certainly worth growing if you like subtle variegation (and can find one).

    I don't recall seeing it offered, where did you get yours? I do like subtle variegation, more so even as I grow older with the trees.

    Still trying to catch up with the thread, here are some pictures starting on the 19th November, going through the 27th. Getting there!

    A. longipes v. weixiense. You can see where the outside leaves, which would normally be the darkest (most red) colored, have burnt off, leaving just the yellow core.

    'Orange Dream', never got much color this year. The yellow was very fleeting. It lost quite a few branches in the drought.
    20221119_164939_v1.jpg

    'Veitchii', here at it's peak. I must say, looking forward to this one putting on some size.
    20221119_171403_v1.jpg 20221119_171439_v1.jpg 20221119_171503_v1.jpg 20221119_171558_v1.jpg

    The peak on my green skinned dwarf selection. I like the small leaves a lot.

    Down by the stream, this A. palmatum hit peak. It is much colder here than in the rest of the garden.

    'Utsu semi' also managed some of the usual fireworks before the end. All of the outer leaves burnt off, this year will be a "good test" of its versatility
    20221122_134331_v1.jpg 20221122_134414_v1.jpg

    This dwarf selection finished a strong yellow, usually many more reddish tones.
    20221125_121429_v1.jpg

    A. palmatum
    20221125_121502_v1.jpg

    A. stachyophyllum
    20221125_121726_v1.jpg

    'Shin chisio'
    20221125_121856_v1.jpg

    palmatum and platanoides. The Norway maple species has been very long lasting, as with the others the outer leaves were burnt off.
    20221125_145230_v1.jpg

    A. cappadocicum ssp. sinicum. Not really known for its autumn color, but it does add a late splash

    From the 28th, I know we are getting towards the end when A. schneiderianum starts going really orange. This post may well be my last pictures in the thread, taking me through the 2nd of December. Because of the incredibly warm October, it's been a very long season, in spite of the horrible drought the maples have really shown how tough they are. Well, those that didn't die, of course.

    I want to say how much I've enjoyed everyone's photos. Thank you.

    A. schneiderianum, 'Shin chisio' with A. cf discolor still very green (though the others of that taxa have long since dropped leaf), a last look at schneiderianum in the aceretum, with the green A. amplum ssp. catalpifolium

    Murasaki kiyohime, the only hime that didn't turn a disappointing yellow; A. rubescens 'Red Flamingo'
    20221128_123820_v1.jpg 20221128_124016_v1.jpg

    A. schneiderianum on a different day: it really is a stunner.
    20221130_162434_v1.jpg 20221130_162455_v1.jpg

    A. monspessulanum finally going yellow, and a different A. cappadocicum ssp sinicum than in the previous post
    20221201_130136_v1.jpg 20221201_130510_v1.jpg

    Last colors from Linearlobum and A. griseum
    20221201_130549_v1.jpg 20221201_130847_v1.jpg

    A. x conspicuum 'Silver Cardinal'

    A. pectinatum 'Alice', doesn't provide much variegation (I call it "Plain Alice") but good strong color, like most of the pectinatum ssp pectinatum
    20221201_132332_v1.jpg

    A. rubescens 'Yakushima nishiki'
    20221201_132437_v1.jpg 20221202_120906_v1.jpg

    A. rubescens 'Summer Snow'

    Mine was from Hippopottering, so your side of the channel I would think it will be worth looking at Dick van der Maat.

    Fall color is coming to an end with the rootstock in the small greenhouse.

    Then Mr. 'Sir Happy' is finally showing how happy he is.

    "Quand y'en a plus, y'en a encore !..." (Colloquial optimistic saying, or expression, something like "when there's nothing left, there's some more")

    The Acer palmatum in the ground is always the last one to lose its leaves. Call the fire brigade !

    Picture 3 is the one that can be seen in the distance, once a cutting that I left unattended in the back garden and decided it was a good place to take root...
    Picture 4 is a close-up of leaves on the lower branch, the only one that got sun-scorched.
    Picture 5 is a bottom branch, East-Noth-East, always in the shade.

    That's funny that some Japanese maples still have their leaves at this time of year whilst other have lost theirs almost a month ago!

    This was yesterday with one of the first real frosts this season!

    Are you near the coast Chris? If so that might account for them staying around a bit longer.

    I am in Bristol (surburbs, and about 7 miles from the Bristol channel), so I guess it's a bit warmer than in the countryside :-). I can see how in the first half of the garden - a bit more shaded because of the houses - all the trees turned last month, whereas at the back, they are only now finishing losing their leaves

    The Bristol Chanel does bring some strange micro climates and tidal surges, so perhaps as you say, 7 miles away might be enough to give you a late display of Autumn colours. Lovely to see today on this exceptionally cold weather weekend.

    Well, the weather has been very cold, down to -7°C a few times (and again tonight), but as of a few days ago there were still some maples holding on in a second set of leaves. Even today, we noticed some native oaks with green leaves.

    Here's a dwarf selection. I hope it will make it, still very small at 12 years old. Also Miko showing us all how winter napping should be done.
