    15th April 2021 and the start of another season for my Goshiki Shidare. Yes, only just starting, but what a wonderful time....

    29th April 2021 and although it looks like it has been hit by the frosts, this is how it looks every leafing out. Goshiki-shidare is well known for this appearance. I will post again in a few days to prove all is well.

    20th May 2021and it has taken a long time for the leaves to unfurl. 'Far too cold this Spring'.
    A difficult to photograph cultivar IMO, but here it is.

    4th June 2021 and the colours on my Goshiki-shidare are just amazing this year. It always seems to have a year on year off type of thing.

    28th June 2021 and my Goshiki-shidare has loved the cooler temperatures and rain over the last couple of weeks. All bodes well for a good Autumn display.

    24th April 2022 and I wanted to show the different phases of this dissectum, as it is one of the best for highlighting the variegation of the leaves.

    22nd May 2022 and I was asked if this dissectum is the most variegated in my collection. Well the photos show that it possibly is.

    This one takes it's time to get going , first picture in 2014 very minimal variegation for the first couple of years and even when it does start nothing overly spectacular , far better on Toyamas i find.
    Pics 2 , 3 , 4 from today last pic from fall 2021

    I wonder if the difference is between my ground grown and yours in a pot M?
    Also like Hana Matoi, the varigation gets better with age. Btw, a beautiful specimen you have there.

    Another pic of the same tree in 2013 a few more white , green and purple leaves and you have a Hana matoi :):) did a root prune and re pot on this one year and it came out the following year with huge dissected green and white leaf very strange !! Find my variegated dissectums do far better in containers than the ground , see much better colouration both in the spring then followed by stunning fall colours.

    24th June 2022 and I wondered why my old Goshiki shidare was so bright this year. It was in the final throws of life, but Hey ho !! This happens with trees.
    So here is my new replacement. Quite small of course but nice and healthy and some lovely variegation.
