Re: How can I set the primary photo for a plant that has multiple photos?

In forum: How to use the site

Thanks for responding. I've now found that I can get it to work for most of my plants, however one is still giving me problems. It is Acer palmatum dissectum - Firecracker. When I click 'View all photos' there is a noticeable delay before I see the popup as attached. I cannot click on any of the thumbnails.
Perhaps you could check this one out for me.
Thank you.

Is it a acer palmatum, there are quite a few varieties, the one that comes to mind if it is a tree is Acer palmatum' Orido Nishiki' but it is not red, we have to have a picture to know if it flowers, acers are known for their foliage.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Small damp,part shady,north facing back garden!!

Message from Angela Graham

In forum: New member

I have bought an acer palmatum for my small patch of north facing garden. It is a popular one and quite a common one - 'Katsura'. A fairly slow growing one with leaf interest in all seasons,except winter. It likes partial shade and I can keep it in a compact shape as it grows larger,so I am pleased with that! The soil is probably not ideal for it,but I have dug in some leaf compost etc before planting it. Along with that I have now planted some slow growing dwarf type conifers Chamaecyparis Lawsoniana' Snow White' and 'Summer Snow' and 'Silver Threads' along with Juniper X Media 'Old Gold'. So the 'bare bones' of my planting is more or less complete. There is quite a lot more to do yet.

The fruits look it, they are edible but don't taste good. A good Japanese maple tree is Acer palmatum butterly, it is small. Cherry trees have surface roots that can damage pavements and they are hard to underplant.

If you want all year privacy, you might need a conifer or a large broad leaved shrub, I hope you are thinking of putting the tree away from the house by a good 15-20 feet, it will give you the privacy you need without it fighting with the house. Acer palmatum is a slow growing tree and they require a bit of shade, cherries are faster, but their root systems are horrible, they both grow 20 feet wide unless you go with some of the variegated varieties which will burn. You should specify how many feet tall and how wide. Koeluteria paniculata is fast growing, but it is 25-30 feet high and 12-14 feet wide. A nice broad leaved evergreen is arbutus unedo compacta, it has strawberry like fruits and white flowers a nice tan peeling bark, but it does like acidic soil.

Re: Re: Re: Some help with Acers needed!

In forum: Identify a plant

Took the following info from a growers web-site. We have no personal experience with this variety but good tip is, when you know a name, do a google image search, find a picture that matches, then follow the link to the site. Sometimes its just a picture someone else has posted, sometimes its another grower or seller that will have specifics on care.
Acer palmatum 'Little Princess'
(Acer palmatum 'Chiyo-hime')
Hardy Tree
This superb Japanese Maple is cloaked in lovely red tinged summer foliage, turning to vibrant yellows and oranges by autumn. The best leaf colours are produced in a partially shaded position which is sheltered from drying winds. With its slow growing, compact habit, Acer palmatum 'Little Princess makes a fantastic dwarf specimen tree for a patio container, reaching only 150cm at maturity. Height and spread: 150cm (59").

Are you sure this is Acer platanus? looks like Acer Palmatum aconitifolium or one of the many other palmatum varieties.

In forum: Allotments

Sorry, I should have said, but I thought "a rose (Acer) was a rose was a rose". I have 2 (two) Purple-leaved threadleaf Japanese (Acer palmatum var. dissectum atropurpureum) and 1 (one) Japanese maple 'Orange Dream' (Acer palmatum 'Orange Dream'). I don't know about the soil, but I will check ASAP. I will also find and get the feeds you mention. Thank you very much for your help.

Re: Plants in the Garden

Message from Ben's Botanics

In forum: Identify a plant

#1 could be anything- need a close-up of those leaves!
#2 looks alarmingly like a Sequoia sempervirens 'Glauca'- if it is it will grow ENORMOUS... Giant Redwood!
#3 is Cotoneaster- probably C. horizontalis, but might be another (don't know my Cotoneaster cvs very well)
#4 strangely looks like either Ephedra or Polygonum... unusual if it is one or the other!
#5 is an Acer palmatum of some sort- is it really that pink?!
#6 is Pieris formosana, probably 'Forest Flame'.
#7 is an ornamental cherry, Prunus' looks like a form of P. incisa, but not 100%.
#8 Possibly Hebe salicifolia?
#9 Euonymus 'Emerald n Gold'
#10 Euonymus 'Emeral Gaiety'?
#11 One of the many variegated Lawson Cypress cvs, Chamaecyparis lawsoniana.
#12 Large Rosemary? Leaves should be scented...
#13 Hydrangea macrophylla cv.
#14 Lamprocapnos (Dicentra) spectabilis.

Acer die back

Comment from Del Jenkins

In forum: General

I've got an acer palmatum osakazuki that I transplanted to its current site last April. It is in full sun on a well drained slope, needless to say has had plenty of water all summer, and has thrived for the first few months. Unfortunately, it has now started to die back on one side (see photos), and I am wondering (a) why it might be happening, and (b) what to do about it. Should I prune away all the dead wood and all the wood that has lost its leaves (now half the tree), or just hope that it recovers next spring. The remaining leaves look really healthy. Alternatively, if I give up and replace it next spring, can I put the same variety in the same place, or is this the wrong situation entirely. (I've got an acer sango kaku in a slightly more shaded site nearby that is doing really well.) I live at the edge of the North York Moors in a challenging climate. Thanks for your help.

optimal growth

Comment from ssb

In forum: Acer palmatum 'Osakazuki'

I bought my Acer Palmatum "osakazuki" from a garden market stall, and was wondering what's the best way to grow it to speed up the process (I understand it is a slow growing plant), as in its current status it looks very thin and spindly, and doesn't appear to be growing correctly, see attached image. The darker image is the place I normally keep the plant under a pergola with protection from most winds. The sunny picture is for clarity.

Problem with Acer Palmatum Taylor

Comment from Marcella Cox

In forum: Pests, diseases and invasive biosecurity risks

Hi, I have a plant Acer Palmatum Taylor and its leaves seem to be turning white. I water the plant correctly and it is in the shade in the morning and sun in the afternoon but I am worried it may have a bug or disease. I know the leaves are pink and green, but what I don't understand is why they are going white!

.....Thank you for your advice. Sadly, my Acer Palmatum Taylor died within 3 weeks' of it being planted - as you informed me - it was down to the severe wind and rain we were having so the leaves simply got scorched until the tree was completely bare! I did inform the nursery where I bought them from that I had a particular windy garden, but was advised that it would be okay there – but obviously not! Anyhow, they kindly took them back. I have since replaced the Acers with a Piers Japonica and Camillia, which I hope will fare better!
