    A cold start again this morning, but some more are getting their leaves, albeit very slowly.

    Great photos - as I’m sure you are aware the Emerald Lace will get enormous over the next 10 years, my one now has a footprint of about 9ft by 6ft..and mine has spent its life potted, now in in a galvanised oval bath! The colour change from green to dark red is nice too

    Finally seasonal weather starting today with temps up to 28C by the weekend. Everything is exploding now.
    Here is an update of the root pruned shishigashira ( now out of the intensive care period and thriving). A very old container grown pixie just waking up. And a few seedlings protecting the roses in the greenhouse.

    @Otto Bjornson hoe long do you keep your root pruned trees protected before you replace them back to the original areas. I did a couple this spring all but one are in protection

    Seedlings from seeds sent by @dicky5ash. I've just repotted the three at the bottom, they were still in a tray :

    These 3 seedlings must be Acer pseudosieboldianum ssp. takesimense :

    And among my sedums, this one has almost blueish tones :

    @Lisa Harry
    The re potted trees will be in those pots for at least one full year. Next spring we will either repot into a nice display type of container or plant into the garden. Leaning towards keeping both the Pixie and Shishigashira in pots right now

    Sadly, it ain't. A. granatense is a member of the Section Acer Series Monspessulana, these maples turn out to have white latex sap, making them members of Section Platanoidea. These seeds were collected by personnel at the Andalusia National Park, and even they made the mistake. Our mutual friend Juan personally collected some, but they never germinated.

    So, they're what is sometimes called "A. pseudogranatense" though it really just means "someone was sure they were granatense, but they're really a southern form of campestre." There are are a few of these around, and on the market, being sold as granatense. (I should know, I bought one some years ago.) They still make nice trees.

    Those A. takesimense (as they're now called) are beautiful, and by all accounts are the real thing (again unlike those found in commerce). I gave 2 away and although I kept one, I sort of regret it. Mine comes out later (now) here, and has only just started spring growth. The warm weather is making everybody go crazy! :)

    A few raised from seed over the years. Last two pics are a maple I grew from Acer takesimense seed which I am pretty confident is crossed. Mother tree (which looked genuine) was at Westonbirt so no shortage of potential fathers!

    Ah... I suspected that.
    Never mind, it's another strain among my campestre, some with rather rounded lobes, others with deeply dissected ones, and the one that is in a very sunny, hot spot that developped a kind of "cork-bark".
    It is a "spontaneous" seedling that I let grow because it hides the dustbins from the street, and I prune it regularly.
    Even the trunk about 3+ cm in diameter) has this unusual bark that is sometimes found in warm climates. Maybe it's because it's facing South and is against a concrete wall that keeps the heat at night.

    Maybe I'll try to take cuttings in june, or root-cuttings next year to see how they develop in a different environment :

    Nice pics, but why not update your profile with a more accurate location?

    "Earth" is a bit vague...

    Acer circinatum 'Burgundy Jewel'. The "burgundy" colour shows later, esp. when it's in full sun :

    acer-circ-BurgundyJewel_230429a.jpg

    Acer sinense. It's the first time it flowers :

    acer-sinense_230429a.jpg

    Acer griseum :

    acer-gris01_230429a.jpg

    ... and I was afraid my last Acer pentaphyllum was gone, but the buds seem to be swelling (Hooray!!!):
