What type of japanese red maple is that? Which of the many acer plamatum?

Walter Pall said...

This is th variety 'deshojo'.
I warn everybody of this variety. It is VERY weak and susceptible to a fungus which is bound to kill it eventually. The red maple is DEAD!

Thank you for the information. I really like the white looking bark. Is that normal? Are you aware of other red maple varieties having that?

That's really sad news about the that stunning tree. I only found the blog due to an ebay ad where the seller was using a picture of that extact tree which I then later saw by coincidence on a google search that led me here.

Matt,

this is the most stolen image of all my photographs. Yes, some sell 'bonsai seed' with my image which they have never gotten permission for. The bark is so light gray because it was sprayed with lime sulphur in winter.

My favorite photo is the first one - the one which has the color red. It is so stunning. Merely looking at these photos are like seeing real trees. They seem so real. Thanks for sharing your photos. They can take stress away.
