I've been doing a lot of research on Japanese Maples lately, and using the '5 Favorite' thread a lot for ideas and observations.

So I calculated the most popular varieties. Drumroll please...

#5 Seiru
#3 Shindesojo (tied)
#3 Osakasuki (tied)
#2 Shishigashira

And the winner, by one vote....

#1 Aconitifolium

The votes and other nominated varieties are below. Have fun with it. Maybe it'll be helpful to someone.

I don't believe it!....my favourite didn't even get one vote (Ukigomo)..I must have poor taste ha ha.
Actually,interesting post Geedavey,though not quite the results I expected,I've often wondered what were the favourites.Thanks for putting in the time&effort :)

I noticed that too as soon as I posted. Ukigomo did get a few votes - 3 or 4. Somehow I deleted it when arranging the data.

AHA! I'm not alone then.
I quite expected the top ones to be something like..Bloodgood,Crimson Queen,Orange Dream,Garnet etc...based on popularity...but then popularity doesn't nessecarily mean favourite I guess.Perhaps availability and growing conditions have dictated their popularity but meanwhile everyone still has favourites,wether they own them or not.It's nice to see a couple of the less well known cultivars make it to the top 5.
