thanks Mike, this is just one of many colours it does! this is obviously the new growth, it turns lime green/bright yellow in the summer and then gold and orange in the autumn.

I love Acers. There are so many different ones and the leaf colours are all brilliant.

possibly Torwood, i'm not sure but this was labled up 'Sango-Kaku' so unless the lable is wrong? bit i know there are lots of very simular varieties, i also have an 'Orange Dream' which is practically the same all year round appart form the autumn, the orange dream turns bright orange and this one turns yellow/orange. but at the moment they look the same.
