    Inaba Shidare has mostly turned deep green as we go towards late summer, but the new growth is a lovely red.

    More and more new growth, turning redder and redder every day. Loving it!

    16th April 2022 and the heat yesterday here in the UK has got my Inaba shidare underway. All systems go now.

    My Inaba Shidare is doing well after the winter. Just moved it to a new spot, so we'll see how it does here:

    Certainly stands out in that position Xi. Could be a permanent spot !!?

    Thanks D, I hope so -- I moved my Suminagashi and then had the problem that this corner became a sea of green, so I definitely need at least one of my reds to break up the colour and give some interest. I'm hoping Inaba Shidare can cope as it's a shadier spot than it was in previously, so crossing my fingers it doesn't start going green on me!

    Inaba shidare does like a bit more sun than others Xi. So it might be an ongoing experiment.

    The perks of having 'em in pots! Keeps me busy hauling them around the garden and allows for experimentation/'redecorating' whenever I get a bright idea for a new look :)

    4th May 2022 now fully leafed out, so two photos to share. Only 5ft tall, but has some presence in my garden.
