    I'm just amazed by how much growth this little guy has put out since May: it genuinely makes some of my bamboo look slow-growing by comparison!

    Now I'm looking forward to seeing all those pink leaves next spring, now they have so much more branch-space to take advantage of.

    This little guy was my favourite last year: he's just starting to leaf out now with a more subtle peach than last year:

    Mine as well Xi, strange that you don't see it too often on the forum. How could anybody resist those colours.

    To my surprise, the new leaves are almost identical to 'Red Wine'. The bark of the latter is red, but that's about the only difference this year.

    The sun is going down, the light is different, but on the right 'Redwine' (see the dark red bark in the bottom right), and 'Momoiro koya-san' on the right :

    Not as impressive as it was last year (and not nearly the show-stopper that other people's on this thread are!), but still a pretty little thing:

    This guy missed out on the really vivid spring colours this year, but it's making up for it now with that startlingly pink new growth over the older greens:

    19th June 2022 and a very happy Momoiro Koyasan in my garden this year, all bodes well for a good Autumnal display.
