    Description from Mr Maple:
    Mine is absolutely tiny, but the difference I notice between this and my Crimson Queen is that 'Queen' is currently turning green in its sunny spot in my garden, whereas 'Princess' gets only filtered light and a lot of shade during the day and is still holding onto its red colouring.

    Pictures from late May, early June, and early July below:

    Crimson Princess hasn't grown much (at all, honestly) since the photos a month ago, but it's keeping those colours going strong into August:

    Definitely brighter pink/red than Crimson Queen. Very pretty Xi.

    Here's a spring picture. It doesn't seem to be doing much, which makes sense as it's meant to be a slow grower. Seems happy enough though, which is all I ask!

    Not as fast growing as Crimson Queen, which means ideal for a patio pot etc etc. Very cute photo Xi.
