    Still some good colour on this one amongst the green undertones:

    Easily a week of difference on the colour change with mine Xi. No remnants of April frost damage on yours. You have it very well protected there.

    Thanks D - this one feels like quite a tough little tree, which is always nice when you don't have to worry about them as much as certain of the others!

    Yes it is Xi. Doesn't ever seem to suffer from extremes in temperatures at all.

    8th June 2021 and on a bright sunny and warm morning, my Beni Otake was looking quite nice, so it deserved a photo to share.

    27th June 2021 and my Beni Otake going more green, but with hints of second flush about to start.

    12th July 2021 and my very green Beni otake. Not much sun these past few weeks to keep the reds.

    Very green at the bottom, very red right at the top. Quite fun to see!

    Beni Otake putting out some big wide leaves on the new growth - I'm always amused at how dramatically different the leaf-shapes are at different times of year. Mine's much darker than @wind-borne 's vivid beauty, though!
