Trident Autumn colour

Postby PeterH » April 26th, 2014, 3:44 pm

This is just under 250mm and was a self seeded plant about 5 years ago from my next door neighbours tree. Its not the best Bonsai yet but I posted it for its colour.

Also my new camera can create effects thus the second photo.

Regards,

Peter

Love the colour of the leaves in Autumn. I don't usually get such strong colour here in Sydney so I really appreciate seeing this tree in its glory.

I got red color leaves a couple of weeks ago on one of my tridents...it is a mame. I thought it is a fertilizer burn...he he he! The rest are green. Is it autumn color? Is it genetic?
Now looking at yours must be autumn color...
I am a bit surprised because did not expect autumn color in Africa...so far the lowest temps are 16C at night only.

Hi Neli,

Yes it is Autumn colour and it can vary genetically and environmentally. Also shape of the leaf can vary. This is why when doing a setting of 2 or more trees it is important to pick trees that have come from the same parent.

Neli, some of my tridents show lovely colour, and some don't. All I can say is if you want cuttings, take them from this tree as it seems to stick with the cuttings. Don't ask me why cause I don't know!!!! ;)

He he he! Andrew...It must be genetic...I thought of the same thing...but already rooted over 100 cuttings from the rest of the maples before I new it was not fertilizer burn.
I shall use them for root grafting...
