Taiwan Maple Mame

I have had this one about five years, and it's had a tough time recently. Defoliated twice, once by me and once by the vicious Sydney sun, it has fought back and is now thriving in the shade on the Best Balcony in the World.

Acer Buergerianum var. Formosanum has it's detractors, but I continue to enjoy them, especially this little survivor!

The pot is by Tracey Francis and is an absolute favourite of mine.

Indulgent, perhaps, but the sun shifting gently round prompted another photo.
Enjoy!

I have to agree with the pot, very nice. I don't know much about taiwan maples but will be interested to see leaf reduction? Also not sure about Mame, looks shohin sized.

Sorry TT but :imo: the pot seems a little too masculine for this feminine Maple.
You seem to love it however, and that's all that really matters.... Thanks for showing! :tu:

Well done keeping this one alive TT. Not an easy feat with these little pots, even on the Best Balcony.

I've found these do not ramify as well as the standard tridents so I don't bother growing them now. They do flower and set seed at a very young age, even in pots so that does give them an added attraction.
