This is a volunteer found among many young seedlings below my landscape acer circinatum (vine maple). It has pretty red newly emergent leaves, but the leaves look nothing like vine maple leaves! In fact they look similar to a.p. "Trompenburg", but I haven't one, nor is there one within miles of mother tree. Maybe it is a natural sport mutation, but it has a sibling that looks identical.

I find myself moving in this direction.
My "four-figure" tree from NEBG. Obviously a dwarf when I bought it, unsure of name....but I knew a MUCH shorter height were in my plans. @rockm had posted a link to Mikawa yatsubusa on another thread, so I'm pretty sure it's that. SLOWWW grower, so this could take awhile.....

More on maples (a. palmatum in this case).

A pair of thread grafts (arrows in the direction of xylem sap flow, from roots to leafs/tips). Are they ready/taken or give them more time?

Why not? The "out-ty" looks much bigger than the "in-ny".

…..while we're here, do you think we should try your theory about JBP and timing of pruning?

Refresh = all decandling was done 1-5 June 19, so today is 5 weeks + a day or two. During this period day-time highs have been in the high 60sF and nighttime lows in the high 40sF = cool as is normal for Anacortes (everything grows here, just slowly).

Adventitious buds are now green and unmistakable on my landscape JBP IMG_20190711_111736230.jpg

They are easy to identify on my 'thunbergii stick' though some buds are still brown IMG_20190711_111806623.jpg

Things are so conjested on my JBP 'Thunderhead' that I still am unsure of what's happening. There are some apparent fascicular buds (F) I think there is an adventitious bud that is still brown (brown arrow) and ? I don't know what (?). InkedIMG_20190711_111815039_LI.jpg

As I recall, you have needles being expressed on the adventitious buds by this span of time.

Juniper, 3rd year in training, from a small nursery plant then left to grow, dug up & styled. It's an old tree that I've almost killed twice by scalping it - it's taught me a lot about Juniper. Shari is very new - just a few months old. It's 18 inches high, 16 wide, 3 inch trunk base. Still far to go but growing strongly now and healthy.

Reverse time line in pictures.
