Acer sempervirens

A wee gem , and a toughie too considering it comes for Crete, higher up though, after about ten years mine has produced the wholly sum of two seeds this year, please do not let those pesky mice or birds (or chickens) get them, I really want to wait till they are ready and then sow them! 
Eight feet high so far and the interior leaves are evergreen in case you are confused by the genus name. 
This would be a great bonsai subject. 
Perhaps I should try some hardwood cuttings but do not expect a roaring success with this method, it is after all an Acer and as with most Acers they insist on doing things their own way!
