Acer Trompenburg....Above the graft?

Why have i got strong thick branches growing with different shape leaves (same colour) from above the graft? Il add a pic shortly.



A photo will certainly help us to answer your question, are you sure these branches are growing from above the graft?

It's possible, Moon Grower, it happened to me with a different variety of Japanese Acer some years ago. Mixed genetic information, or a blip - I just removed the offending branch right back to the main stem. It didn't grow again, but I was surprised, I thought it might.
