I am posting several pictures of this maple as there have been request of me to do so. Please enjoy. The more I look at this plant the more I am inclined to think that the plant will take on the appearance of a weeping form. The branches have a wispy lateral growth to it that gives the appearance of a pendulous form.

I am thrilled to have been in on this from the start . I don't know that much about J P,s but love the many forms and have planted many around my place the last three years , and I've shared more than fifty common bloodgoods with friends . I have two threadleafs that I'm looking for the "right" spot to place them in my yard .
Thank you for the pictures . digger

Simpler name? LOL. I name this after my daughter, it is a variation of her name with a close family meaning to it.

Hey, it is looking nice! I wonder it's eventual size, seems still quite small if this is the parent plant I saw bare branched a couple of years ago.

I think the name is unique.

That is the same one Laura. I have to leave it alone for a while. I made about 45 this year and have about have about 33 left. I will be taking scions from the new grafts that are left and leaving the original alone for a while.
