    Now that Beni Shigitatsu Sawa has woken up, it's doing its best to make up for lost time earlier in the spring. Lots of colour changes as those leaves fill out.

    27th May 2022 and my Beni shigitatsu sawa that gets a lot of shade to protect those delicate leaves. I probably should give it a little more light, but I worry about burning.

    Very similar colours and shapes at this time of year before Beni deepens into its late summer colour. Shigitatsu Sawa top, Beni Shigitatsu Sawa bottom:

    Still looking very similar as we wait for Beni to take on that sudden flush of colour. Shigitatsu Sawa top, Beni Shigitatsu Sawa bottom:

    I compared to a photo I took almost one year ago on this thread -- by 3 July 2021 Beni had already gone red; this year the same tree is drab green with some red growth. How bizarre!

    11th November 2022 and this what the drought and extreme heat has done to my Beni shigitatsu sawa leaves this Autumn.

    Quite strange but pretty in its own way.
