Hiya Debbie.

Not the Acer expert here ...sure they will comment though.

Its just autumn.  The leaves will do that now.  In spring it will produce new fresh leaves

Hiya nut

Get good red leaf colour now in wilmottianum.  Griffithi is more tender.  I had it for several years but winter wet ultimately got it I think.  Will get another now.

Yes photo will be nice.  Never actually grown plumb. Cos it spreads too much I think??

Hiya 4thPanda.  Think you are wise to do that.  You will get good support here. 

First step on recovery road is to recognise you have problems.  That's not easy to do so well done

Willmotianum I think nut.  Never grown plumbaginoides but,that's the creeper isnt it?  Willmottianum is a shrub .....sub shrub I guess......growing to 3 or 4' high.  Foliage takes on red tints now.  Griffithii is the evergreen version but doesn't have red autumn tints.

Well Done busy.  Think you are spot on.  Very observant.  I thought it was mahonia at first cos the leaves do turn red on some varieties.  Busy gets first prize today. - a virtual choc bar
