(Almost) Wordless Wednesday: A Bit of a Mouthful

Close-up of Acer palmatum 'Dissectum Atropurpureum' leaves in the rain

Acer palmatum var. dissectum Dissectum Atropurpureum Group is a bit of a mouthful, so it's good to see it's a synonym now for the slightly snappier Acer palmatum 'Dissectum Atropurpureum'.

Whatever its name, it's still one of my favourite plants.

    1. Thanks Brian. It's my oldest plant in the garden, having followed us from house to house :)

    1. It does - still one of the more lengthy plant names though ;)
