Good morning ladies, as this is its first spring with me I am amazed at the speed of the development & the rate at which these leaves are opening. They are still downy and quite mesmerising @juliesgarden @debs69 @godfreye @pelly @catz
Afternoon everyone and thank you! This really does showcase autumnal colours beautifully. So pleased with it. It’s quickly become a favourite! 💚❤️💛 @juliesgarden @charlotte @jacaranda @anges @Jean12345 @novicegardenlover @hebelover
These are the leaves on my recently acquired acer. The leaves aren’t filigreed like a palmatum, more traditional maple shaped 🍁 Has interesting red stems too #foliagefriday #maple #acer #acer-japonicum #ajaug22
When your heart over rules your head…completely smitten with this planter and fabulous acer. Got it home. Struggled to get it out of car into the garden. Then reality dawns. Wrong type of acer for a container. Not sure there’s anywhere I can accommodate this fabulous acer. Don’t want to think about the practicalities of getting the acer out of the planter either 🥺😢 #planter #acer #impulsebuy Still love it though!
That what we do with shade loving plants🪴we see something, fsll in love, then get it home, Google it and realise it needs shade, which we have very little of in our garden. We always squeeze them in somewhere though 😁
Tell me about it! Sometimes you’ve just got to have a particular plant and you worry about the practicalities afterwards. I think my husband despairs of me at times! 😆 I could do with pinching a bit of the neighbours garden, that would be one solution! 😅😂 @angiecrazycatlady
Thanks Deborah, it is a beautiful combination. Such a shame they can’t be long term companions. You’re right though. I shall enjoy it for now and give myself time to ponder on what to do moving forward. Time and patience…and hopefully some much needed inspiration! @debs69
From what I can gather, unlike the acer palmatum, I haven’t been able to find any reference for growing this particular variety japonicum Vitifolium in pots. It grows up to 4x4m. Also I’m a little concerned regarding removing it from the planter in view of the roots and shape of the planter Jason. Apprehensive to say the least! @hebelover
