Ideas for Gardens

Willing to contribute photos for display on this site? We, and our regular visitors and contributors would very much appreciate your help in making this focal point for discerning gardeners a success. The emphasis here is on plants in a garden environment, not in their natural location. A snap of that one in your garden would be very much appreciated. Please give as much detail as you can about the plant and the photo.


Acer palmatum 'Tsuma Gaki'

Grown by:- George Kelly

Location:- Co Down,  N Ireland

Season/Date taken:- Spring 17th April 2001

Photo Reference:- IGC00023

This specimen made strong growth on girth with equally stong branching. Made 13" (33 cm) in its first year after purchase. Update 11th June 01. This plant is a surprise package. The leaves on my plant developed a more golden yellow colour with a purpureum coloured tips (like the one drooping bottom left of this photo). Then as the leaves developed further, they darkened to a light purple, slightly lighter than the tips, and there are leaves developing at each of these stages all over the plant. Now one of my favourites.
