Ebihara in the future?Yeah, im not chopping now. Im expecting its rubrum because it was under my japanese maple with all the other rubrum seedlings. If it isnt, I would be surprised. We'll see what the leaves look like next year.
Rubrums have a huge genetic range. Leaf shape can vary substantially. I'd say it's a rubrum judging by the light bark and the new growth is a dark red.Leaf looks weird for Rubrum.
I have a bunch of Rubrums starting up too.
What are you plans?
I dont chop before winter, not saying you can't, but I don't like wounding the tree as it goes dormant....basically a guarantee for some dieback.
