Acer palmatum ‘Taylor’
(Revised 23 Nov 2017)
This delicate beauty is noted for keeping its creamy pink colour into summer. However, many collectors have tried repeatedly and failed to keep one surviving more than 3-5 years. I fully expect to lose mine, but I still have to try it at least once. My first one survived 4 years through one of the worst winter and drought, and yet it was killed by a fungus disease after an abnormally wet spring. I am on my second one.
