How weird - the reds have been the last in my garden Brian :)
I love how this spills out over the edge of the path

there is a log lying along the edge of the path out of site under the Acer and couple of years ago I drove several nails into it and tied the Acer to it ,this has worked well as it is now growing where I want .

Scottish afraid I dont have a name for it I bought it at a plant fair some years ago it was quite small and spindly so lent its self to being pulled over,it has attempted to make a couple of vertical stems these I cut off.
The Dissectum one in the other pictures stay low but more symmetrical.

Thanks Brian - I might have a look for one which may lend it's self to being trained like this - thanks for the tip :))

Scottish look at Nurseryman Chris Pattison's site he know his Acers,not suggesting you buy from him but a few names jotted down might be a help when you look for one, he gives the ultimate heights when grown normally
