I don't know which cultivar name is correct. The US National Arboretum, late May, 2006.
I have one of these - a small one, and I love it. It has a nice habit, and the color of the leaves, stems and trunk is a pleasing lime green. There is supposed to be some variegation in the leaves, but if there is its extremely subtle. It has that "glow" to it, though. Enjoy pics!
Vertrees 3rd edition mentions that because Aocha Nishiki is not referenced in Japanese literature that it may be a corruption of the name Aoba nishiki. However I found an online a source that referenced Aoba nishiki (which is not in V3rd) as having red fall color rather than yellow.
Here are a few pics I posted on another thread of A.p. 'Aocha nishiki' fall colors. Very nice yellow-gold. This is a wonderful cultivar, with dependable habit and color. Not a fast grower, but seems sturdy. Enjoy.
The yellow of these leaves is awesome! I haven't seen cultivars labelled Aocha Nishiki or Seicha (or even Aoba Nishiki) here in NZ. Are there any other cultivars that have a fall yellow colour like this?
