    this one starts out more orangey, finishes closer to red a shrubby tree, angular branching but less formal than others. i had seven of these, three in the wettish spot have done well, the others were in sandier soil. opens reddish orange in the spring, stay tuned...

    another look at the same trees - 11-17 to 11-19 2023. amazing color, changes by the day and with the light, hard to catch in a photo but these are spot on

    A new one to me, but I think I'm going to like it a lot. Such variations of reds and orange, what's not to be liked....

    this one's a keeper. not so formal but always looks sharp. Outer leaves now are chestnut red from the top but the entire appearance is copper in the morning sun - this has been consistent every year. This stand of katja really glows. I expect these will get really big in time.
