Still not absolutely sure of the variety of this acer which I bought from Morrisons but it’s one of my favourites 🍁 #acer #japanese-maple #japanesemaple #foliagefriday

I agree, just a shame I can’t put a name to this beauty @kez001uk

Thanks Shelley, unfortunately this one seems to be evading identification. It was a supermarket purchase so won’t be any of the more specialist expensive varieties 🍁🍁 @ShelleySnyder

@italydiva ‘Butterfly’ was my first thought but I’m not sure about the colours 🤔

I know what you mean Kerry, it does have similar features but as you say, the colours are a little confusing. I came across one called Strawberry Spring. It has the green central vein through each of the bisected leaves but I can’t see Morrisons selling anything like that? @kez001uk @ShelleySnyder

@italydiva you wouldn’t think they’d sell one that’s more rare, but you never know 😛 might have been lucky 😉

I have to agree with @kez001uk you never know what you can get at a supermarket, I've gotten some pretty sweet deals! So don't assume it's not a real good one, ya never know!💘😍

@ShelleySnyder don’t think they know what they’re buying in half the time so that’s why they’re often cheaper. Worth taking a chance on for sure 😛

Here’s some more photos of this little acer that’s challenging us with its identity! This shows the difference in colouring/markings on the leaves. Thoughts on a postcard ! 😂 @acermad @ShelleySnyder @ublaszko @Keely #acerpalmatum #acer #foliage #foliagefriday

Def not convinced its butterfly leaves look completely different to mine 😕 its a mystery 😯

Wonder if yours could be a young "Taylor"? 😯

I can see what you mean Keely, there are definite similarities. Just wondering about the irregular blotchyness on my leaves though, can’t see any on Taylor? 🤔 @Keely

You've got me stumped Angela! I've just been looking and can't come up with anything!🤦💘😍

@italydiva I’m sticking with Butterfly only because I can’t see Morrisons selling any unusual varieties, maybe Taylor? 😬🤔

Keely

No but also can't see mozzers selling any special varieties except the more common ones like butterfly, whatever it is its got lovely veins in leaf 💕💚💕

Thanks so much for all your input and suggestions. I agree as it was a Morrison’s purchase it’s likely a more common variety but it’s doing a very good impersonation of something different! 😂 We’ve got a few contenders but I’m completely confused 🤷‍♀️ I think I’ll keep an eye on it and post pics as it develops throughout the year. Maybe it’ll give up its secrets as the colour of the leaves change? Thanks so much for all your help 😘 @Cazx @ShelleySnyder @acermad @Keely @ublaszko
