Pretty desperate here for Orido Nishiki seeds.
Does anyone have them? I'd be delighted!

You might ask people on this old thread - it was about a group buy of Japanese maple TREES, not seeds, but someone might have seeds or know where to buy them.
The thread "Japanese Maple Group Buy!" in Classifieds and Group Buys forum

Most vendors seem to sell only the trees, not seeds. Are you sure it can be propagated from seed? It might be a recent hybrid and not an OP variety (its seeds MIGHT not come true).

Here's an Etsy vendor who was out-of-stock:

TheMapleTreeLady: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheMapleTreeLady?ref=unav_listing-...

DG lists three vendors: one bad link an two places that no longer sell the trees.

These ATP members posted photos to the plant database and might have ideas:

ATP member "ediblelandscapingsc " was also looking for it.

Thanks for posting all of that information, Rick. I wouldn't have a clue where to start......

I wish I knew whether that variety even comes true from seeds. Or is self-fertile. My guess is that the fastest path will be to ask individuals who "Have" that tree whether they would share or trade some seeds. But no one listed it as "Have", in the plant lists.

Almost all I know about trees is that they create shade (good for people, bad for gardens) and are pretty.

And they totally STARVE anything that grows in the ground in Becky's yard! That whole yard is overshadowed by many huge trees (cedars mostly?) For once, everything grows better in pots than in the ground.

I wonder if there would be any market for a "Roomba" plant platform. You could put a plant on top of it, on your deck, in a sunny spot. As the sunny spot moved each day, the "Roomba" would move slowly to follow the sun. Maybe put the photo-sensors in the foliage of the plants.

they must be grafted and will not come true from seed. That's not saying you wont get something cool from the seeds but it won't be the same and there's a huge chance the seedling will be either green or red without variegation.
