    I thought I would add this picture to this forum as most people think it is a flower of sorts. I have a Garnet that produces the most wonderful colours when it is opening up after winter. Pity it fades during Summer.

    Enjoy.

    While it does fade, even as it greens out in the shade my Garnet is pretty spectacular!

    Re: New leaves from a A.P. Garnet

    Here is pictures taken today of a friend's tree.

    He doesn't know what it is. Do you think this is a garnet ?

    Would you happen to know the name of the hostas that are planted in the foregound of the lovely tree?

    Garnet has some of the nicest colors of any red JM to me, sort of a rosy orange red. Too bad it doesn't keep its color better in the summer heat, although I've heard the colors last better in full sun. Mine is in part shade.

    I've had one in a container for a couple of years, but decided to plant it this spring. It's going to get a lot of sun. Looking good so far.
