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.

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