Can you help identify these please

UBC Maple Forum - Fri, 23/08/2019 - 16:50
These are all garden centre rescues at various times that didn’t have labels...Any thoughts on their cultivar would be much appreciated. Sorry for the bulk of them..

Just thought I’d share a pic of the new growth..terrible pic as you can’t see the huge luscious deep purple leaves that are above only new growth and bottom leaves..that some caterpillars have clearly munched on!!!

Growing a Acer palmatum ( Burgundy Lace Japanese Maple ) Indoors

UBC Maple Forum - Thu, 22/08/2019 - 03:31
I have had these trees at different times in my life, but as I traveled alot they always were in pots and for the most part kept outdoors.

But now that I have bought a house and settled in ID, I bought another one but wish to grow it as an indoor tree (next to my Saber Ficus 'Ficus binnendijkii 'Alii').

It is in a 3gal pot and the tree is 3' tall. The room is brightly lit and recieves full sunlight through out the day.

But I have noticed that some of the leaves are showing light...

Dormancy on recently budded seedlings?

UBC Maple Forum - Thu, 22/08/2019 - 00:03
I have germinated 4 Acer Palmatums sucessfully and they already have 4 real leaves. But since it's winter I'm keeping them inside because of the frost. But must I put them outside? Since I've heard Maples require a dormant period, but since the plants are still so small I don't knnow if they require the cold, dormant period as well.

Can anyone help me out?

Second flush reticulates

UBC Maple Forum - Wed, 21/08/2019 - 06:51
Just a few pictures of some of my reticulates which this year are pushing out some very strong second flush leaf growth.

Purple ghost (3) Mikazuki (4) Olsens frosted (1)

Must admit it's done nothing but rain this year, poor summer re the sunshine but the maples seem to be liking it and all are flourishing well.

Maple Trees

UBC Maple Forum - Mon, 19/08/2019 - 18:13
I have a maple tree that as started to drop it's leaves already. The leaves are a burnt orange in color. So we are wondering if the tree might be dying and if so how do we find out ourselves. We are located in Nova Scotia. I have included a picture although the light isn't very good.

trident maple diagnosis?

UBC Maple Forum - Sat, 17/08/2019 - 22:09
1st post rookie
hello everyone, very interested in getting your feedback and help to rebound the health of a sad trident maple!
I just received the tree 2 weeks ago, it seemed ok although I can’t say for sure if it came with anything from the nursery. they were all separated at first, I slip-repotted them together in an attempt to make it easier through the summer/fall/winter and individually pot them next spring. I removed some...

What is happening to my Emerald Lace?

UBC Maple Forum - Mon, 12/08/2019 - 19:09
Hi all

I haven’t been paying too much attention to my Emerald Lace over the last few months, but whilst having a look around a few days ago I noticed this. It appears healthy and has been growing quite strongly, but for some reason it has lost a lot of its leaves. Could something be eating them or is it not well?


Westonbirt Orange

UBC Maple Forum - Sun, 11/08/2019 - 22:07
Hi everyone.

I have a Westonbirt Orange on order from a supplier called Ornamental Trees. I expect to receive the tree around November time, hopefully before the leaves drop. I have found very little information on this tree so far, perhaps because it is a fairly recent cultivar. I was hoping for some opinions, advice and possibly even some pictures.

Hopefully someone out there has some experience with this tree.


Anyone have issues growing Beni Hime?

UBC Maple Forum - Sat, 10/08/2019 - 01:37
Hey guys, does anyone have issues growing Acer palmatum 'Beni Hime'? Thanks.

Wrong label?

UBC Maple Forum - Thu, 08/08/2019 - 13:16
Morning all.

I am going through my plants and labelling them up when I came across this. Pretty sure it’s wrong. It claims to be a Wilson’s Pink Dwarf, and when I bought it earlier this year it was very hard to tell. However, now I’m thinking it’s Seiryu but thought I’d run it past some expert sets of eyes.


Not Shirasawanum!

UBC Maple Forum - Thu, 08/08/2019 - 09:19
I have these three seedlings I got from the seeds exchange, but I must have mixed up things when I labelled them. They don't look at all like young Shirasawanum, do they? Yet, the light green leaves with narrow leaflets that are almost not serrated look great. If they survive, perhaps they will be easier to identify when they're more mature.

Favorite upright small Japanese Maple?

UBC Maple Forum - Wed, 07/08/2019 - 23:42
Hi all,

Thanks for all the help in my other thread. I have an orangeola on order as the nursery didn’t quite have what I wanted. I am on to a similar spot in the backyard. Looking for a smaller upright JM that does not mature over 10 feet that can tolerate sun until about 2pm. Looking for another tree that will wow all year long. Did some research and have the following thoughts:

A.J. Autumn Moon
AP Beni Maiko
AP Orange Dream (although many mentioned this won’t hold up well to sun)

A.P Going Green

UBC Maple Forum - Wed, 07/08/2019 - 21:07
Hi all

Does anybody know much about this? I saw a small one today at a superstore for £3 so i bought it. As far as I can tell the feature is the green bark which supposedly stands out in the winter. Perhaps it can live next to the Sango Kaku and Bi-hoo.

Advice on Ryusen

UBC Maple Forum - Wed, 07/08/2019 - 12:40
Good morning

Yesterday I picked this up. I have been looking for one for a while but I managed to find one that wasn’t too expensive. Obviously it’s young and small. I’m quite excited about this as from what I have read it is quite a vigorous grower with excellent bright Autumn (fall) colour.

I don’t really have anywhere I can permanently plant it out to show off the cascading, weeping form that will eventually come, so I will grow it in a container. Should I try and put another stake in...

Iseli fly by video

UBC Maple Forum - Sat, 03/08/2019 - 18:09
Anyone who loves Japanese maples, conifers, or plants in general will enjoy this drone video of Iseli Nursery. If you have never seen a large production nursery or ever wonder where your plants come from before they arrive at your local garden center. This video will give you a good idea of how a large scale grower works from the growing fields to the order staging area and the loading docs.

The video is broken up into several parts (5 or 6) lasting a total of 8min 46sec...

Japanese maple sources in Dallas, TX

UBC Maple Forum - Fri, 02/08/2019 - 11:34
besides metromaples, are there any other places that sells them around my area? I’m looking for a more mature Orangeola and metro only has the smaller younger ones at the moment.
