(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. I wouldn't wish to have a garden without an Acer, beautiful picture with the raindrops.

    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 ;)
