    16th June 2021 and the underside of the leaves are not photographed too often, so here is one of mine today.

    It is only visible close up but I love all the different colours, leaf patterns and leaf shapes on my Shirazz/GRD.

    Tiny tree continues to put out bright leaves -- I can't wait till this little guy grows up to look like the gorgeous trees everyone else is posting here!

    My little tree...

    ...and my new, bigger one which was marketed as 'Shirazz Pink Passion', but I think it belongs here too?

    28th April 2022 and mine has woken up now. It's in a lot of shade so does take a bit longer. Next to my Jordan gives a nice contrast of colours.

    Here's the big fella:

    And the medium-sized one, which was marketed as 'Shirazz Pink Passion'. I'm interested to keep comparing them to see if the 'Pink Passion' part is just another marketing trick or if there really is any difference in colour/vividness as it grows older. Very pretty either way, though.

    So pleased you posted both Xi. Wonderful in their own right. Bet you can't stop staring at them. I've clicked on them a few times myself.
