    Hi G, the variation of colours etc etc between areas and in our case continent, is a fascinating topic. I'm not sure it's all down to sun exposure. Soil and environmental conditions I believe has a lot to play in how our trees look, along with the rootstock used.
    Not sure we will ever really get to know the answer, but your posting has raised some questions.

    23rd May 2022 and my Beni otake this morning was really quite dark. It sat amongst the greens quite nicely.

    19th June 2022 and the deep burgundy leaves on my Beni otake are just about perfect IMO now.

    10th April 2023 and the leaves are coming. This is one of my favourites to just sit and stare at as they unfurl.
