Just started another thread for Spring maples.
Appreciation: - Spring maples 2022
Might be nice to look at and look back on in future years.
It's been a long week with lots of late nights at work, but the long Easter weekend is here, there's sun, clear blue skies, and I'm making the most of every glorious second!

(And one of the few non-maples in my garden. Pretty, though)
Omg @Xi-feng your trees are glorious. How did you find your grow bags so far ? I just love the assortment you have of trees and they look so healthy!!
Thanks Lisa -- the grow bags are working pretty well as far as I can tell: I didn't add any extra protection over winter and all the trees made it through unscathed, so that's a good sign! I'm aware that the water drains much more quickly than in plastic/wooden pots - which is the idea, so I can't complain - so it means I need to do more manual watering in warm weather since if I leave them for a day they're all bone-dry, but if you've got the time to dedicate to daily watering then I'd certainly recommend them!
I received some new maples today. ‘Hot Blonde’, ‘Hot Tamale’, ‘Wako Nishiki’, ‘Bling Bling’ and ‘Yellow Cascade’
I do hope they are OK. Some quite bad frost damage on Yellow cascade. Bling bling also has suffered. So I wish you good luck @Worldly_Wrangler. Do keep us all updated.
Happened in transit unfortunately, they arrived like this. 8 days in transit for Wako Nishiki, ‘Yellow Cascade’ and ‘Hot Tamale’ And 4 days in transit for ‘Bling Bling and ‘Hot Blonde’. All from Southeastern US to the Pacific Northwest US.
Lucky man... ;0)
Joking apart, I sometimes wonder what the heck was on their mind when they chose the name.
PS : OK, don't tell me.
@Worldly_Wrangler where did you get 'Bling Bling'
I might not have it in near future if it doesn’t bounce back.
I got the ‘Bling Bling’ from Maple Ridge Nursery, though it’s not currently active on their website.
its been a week and now finally a bunch of small red buds developed on this chalk maple. a good sign of recovery!
It's interesting to see how nominations evolved. From the poetic Japanese to "Bling bling"... $$$
Finally getting some cheerful action here in NY and got a new Dancing Peacock yesterday. I could sure use it. Re-injured one of my bad shoulders and now battling an enterovirus. Good times!!
Still enjoying this unusually pleasant weather: unheard-of for a UK bank holiday weekend!! I was struck by the sheer variety of colours in my garden this morning, so I tried to capture the whole range of what I'm seeing at the moment.

Sharp's Pygmy, Shirazz, Sister Ghost, Summer Gold, Tattoo:
And now that my Beni Shigitatsu Sawa is waking up, here are a couple of comparisons between Shigitatsu Sawa (pale/green) and Beni Shigitatsu Sawa (red/pink):
Some of these trees I didn’t have in spring last year and I am floored by their spring beauty. Had to share with those who would appreciate them, please excuse the neighbours shanty, my less than tidy yard (scheduled to work on Saturday)and some repotting that is needed.
And we really do appreciate them Lisa.
Here is a an up close picture of “Red Cloud” and one of “Taylor”.
Wow, Christmas time in spring ?... ;°)
Like everything in life, maples welcome the diversity that makes them beautiful, otherwise it's just being "monomaniac". The Wisteria is beginning to flower...
Omg I love wisteria so want one but they are quite poisonous to dogs apparently and I just ca t risk my girl. I do have two plants that are poisonous to her I can’t believe I didn’t know when I got them. It’s a Japanese azalea And a yew.
It's the first time I've ever heard of it... ^^
Anyway, young dogs like to chew on anything, but they tend to prefer plastic that is at their reach, not plants or beans. Unless your dog is a cross between a dog and a beaver... ;-)
Seriously now, where did you get that info from ?
This one I bought without a label, so I just call it 'Atropurpureum dissectum'. The red colour is so vivid this year...
