@cee @juliesgarden @ShelleySnyder Thanks folks, it’s a bit worrying as it’s only the beginning of July and we haven’t had a great deal of rain so that hasn’t helped 🍁

On the other hand this one has gone from beautiful acid green leaves to crinkled dead leaves, I shouldn’t be surprised because it does it every year unfortunately 😬🍁💚💀

Beautiful colors Sue. I've got a question for you. Ill be Acer shopping when they arrive at my GC soon. I want one that will stay relatively small by back door, with lots of color of course. Can you cut your acers back to keep them smaller? Should I be looking for a certain type? I don't know my avers. Just have one very large, 30 year old. Need some young life. Sorry to ramble

@columbiariver Hi Laura, mine are all in pots so that restricts the size. You can prune the upright varieties but it can spoil the shape of the weeping types. A lot of them like dappled shade, the red ones need some sun otherwise they turn green, but they all hate wind as the leaves get wind burn. Hope this helps, let me know what you pick 🍁👍🍁

Thank you so much! I do love the weepers. I'll be shopping soon and will let you know. 👏💕😊
