Vance, how is this maple doing???
Vance, whats the specs on this tree?
I lost this tree to a very severe stretch of below zero weather four years ago, along with my Japanese Red Pine.It is budding out a little slow this year because the winter was so cold, below zero a couple of times, and the spring has been so cold. This morning the temperature was 39 degrees F. But it is doing as well as can be expected.
I have an update on the cultivar identification: Someone I know who specializes in the cultivation of J. Maples in the nursery trade has identified it as Beni Kawa. That works for me.
This is the tree as of last summer.
