Deshojo Acer

My Deshojo has finally decided to break into leaf. The display of colour each spring never fails to excite. The young and tender growth with it’s deep colour is just beautiful and as the leaves gradually open they show the promise of what is still to follow. Thankfully, unlike very much else in life, this tree always keeps it’s promise.

My objective for the tree this season is to develop a more convincing triangular shape. The tree has always looked too much like a narrow column and I need to continue to allow the lower foliage to grow outwards and at the same time keep short distances between the nodes for better ramification.

    Great tree and colour, as you say needs a bit more shape and refinement.

  2. Great tree and pot colour combined 🙂

    • Ta Ben. Very generous comment. I really do like this tree mainly because it is one of the first I bought all those years ago and it has survived in spite of many mistakes made along the way.

    Beautiful colour on this Maple. Wouldn’t mind having one with such red leaves.
