    I find 'Mirte' to be a very nice shaped tree with a bit unusually brown green leaves.

    @ROEBUK thankyou M. An absolute stunner, that's the way to brighten up a gloomy day. Hopefully my new one will be like that in a few years.

    It just arrived, 15th October 2020 and very well packaged as you would expect from Hippopottering. It is small, but thats OK, very pretty leaves and I hope it's as good as M @ROEBUK when it grows up !!!

    8th May 2021 and my first pisting of my Mirte for this year. This cultivar is showing great promise and it's going to be a firm favourite in my garden.

    20th May 2021 and an update on my Mirte. You can now see why this is so popular amongst collectors.

    My supplier have this one listed under shirasawanum. I've also found other sites with shirasawanum but nothing mentioning it being a hybrid. I'll keep doing research. But for now here is my 'Mirte'.

    Different leaf to mine D, I would agree yours is a shirasawanum. But still very nice.

    I will start a new thread in the shirasawanum section D. If I create the thread could you move it?

    This looks like another one of those "found in a famous nursery" cultivars that are crosses between shirasawanum and palmatum, or vice versa. Known for hairy leaves in spring which is a shirasawanum characteristic, not palmatum or even amoenum.. Similarly 'Sensu' and 'Trompenburg' have recently been mentioned in the forum. Which gives me an idea...

    Nah, not that interesting, just going to suggest it to that fellow in Canada with an unknown shirasawanum cultivar.
