Acers at Mount Usher
The mild, moist Irish climate suits Japanese maples very well and I will never be able to look one in the stamen again after having seen them to perfection here. Never again will I struggle to make one survive in a pot!

i agree it seems sad to see them in pots after seeing them in full glory .
It never struck me that they didn’t ‘do’ well in the UK. I will look at Mt Usher ones with renewed enthusiasm. I’m sad that I have too much wind for them. I did try one of the above in a pot but it suddenly died last year.
Well, there are areas, especially in the west, where they do very well but, in the drier east of the country, I struggle with them!
