Acer sterculiaceum ssp.franchetii came into it's fall color this weekend
This plant had not a hint of color on Friday. Less than 4 days later it's beautiful.A nice smallish Chinese Maple, it seems to grow fairly quickly and is, so far, free of debilitating diseases. This a a taxa that Amanda has been monitoring for the past year.
