    Thanks D, I'm hoping to keep this up through the summer and autumn to see how they both change -- there's already noticably more red in the Beni than my last picture, so it's going to be fun to compare these two through the rest of the year!

    16th June 2021 and I thought I would add a close up from underneath of the leaves today, to add to the interest of this wonderful cultivar.

    Oh that's lovely, D! Those pink edges are just stunning, aren't they?

    Goodness D how is yours so pretty?? Mine doesn't have nearly so much colour -- I know they need to be shaded, but how much sun does yours get?

    Thankyou Xi, it gets morning sun only and shade from around 1300hrs for the rest of the day. I find all the reticulates are just too sensitive to Summer sun.

    Hmm, I am definitely jealous of that lovely colour so I might need to see if I can shift mine around to catch a bit more of that morning sun. Please do keep posting those gorgeous pics of yours!!

    3rd July 2021 and my Beni shigitatsu sawa is doing quite nicely this year. Seems to have appreciated a cooler June and start to to July.

    Beni Shigitatsu Sawa in the upper half, Shigitatsu Sawa in the lower half. Lots of colour on both, but easy to tell apart at this time of year:

    Thanks D - I always enjoy 'similar but not quite the same' groupings, so it's fun to keep these two super close and see how they both develop and diverge!

    Mid-July now, and the 'twins' are clearly different in leaf-shape as well as colour now. My preference is for the Beni rather than the standard Shigitatsu Sawa at this time of year: it's such a pretty little thing.

    Neither of these two are really doing anything, but here's an autumn pic. 'Beni' on the top, normal Shigitatsu Sawa on the bottom:
