    6th June 2021 and I love this one in my collection. It was so good to hear from a pro @Otto Bjornson that it is one of his favourites also.

    Wow, this one certainly doesn't disappoint right from the minute the box opens.
    Glad to read it does well in full sun as well, no idea where it's going yet but that certainly opens up more options.

    17th June 2021 and my Iigima Sunago is pushing out some new growth this morning. These leaves are just wonderful and I know N @D97x7 is going to love his also.

    Mine today, fully open now and enjoying the sunshine. I love everything about this cultivar, the shape, the leaf colour, even the name has a nice ring to it.

    It is entirely your fault I've been stalking Hippopottering for the last nine months waiting for a notification that this has come back into stock. Lovely, lovely little tree - you must be delighted with it!

    Sorry, lol. I was looking at Emery's Koko earlier, that looks similar and I believe Hippo have it in stock.
