    Mine's very small, but still showing some pretty variegation:

    The bright pink on those leaves is really showing through now:

    Is that the end of your venture with this cultivar Alex?

    I know it hasn't really done anything since my last photo (though I've staked it to encourage some height), but I can't help but take pictures of this little thing - it's definitely one of my favourites this year:

    A photo diary on the forum shows everyone the progression of a cultivar. It gives new and old members the chance to see if it is something for them. I'm watching......

    Here's the little one again. I love the pale pink contrast with the dark leaves: this one is going to be quite something when it gets bigger:

    Has a hint of Hanah Matoi about it Xi. Don't you just love that variegation.

    I had to go and look up Hana Matoi here on the forum and you're right, there are a lot of similarities! Oh well, that's another one to add to my list, given how much I love my little Hanabi no Mai! Isn't this fun!

    Fairly sure I have enough maples now that the fallen leaves can become quite effective insulation...?
