    27th May 2021 and the colours of an individual leaf on this cultivar are just so special, I could just stare at it for so much time no other work would get done in my garden.

    18th June 2021 and after all the heat comes some very welcome rain. So Amagi shigure had to have a photo.

    I think im going to find a spot with a bit more sun for mine. I like the more reddish color.

    10th July 2021 and as promised a very wet Amagi shigure. So much rain in England this Summer. Reminds me of my childhood.

    10th April 2022 and after a few overnight frosts, my Amagi shigure is coping and ready to show itself for this season.

    That sea air keeps the frosts away. At least two weeks ahead of mine and looking amazing.

    My new one, arrived yesterday in lovely condition. Must admit my heart sank when I received notice that it was put in the post on Thursday before the long weekend, but to my surprise it was delivered on a bank holiday.

    Hope I've got the right thread?

    You can spot Amagi shigure from a long way away in the garden at this time of year, it is a very bright tone, and looks lovely close up with the dark veins.

    1st May 2022 and I thought I would add mine this morning. As has already been said, this one stands out at this time of the year.

    12th May 2022 and it's hard not to just stop and look at this one every morning in my garden. Give it some protection and it will reward.
