Earlier than the average JM here, but not the earliest. Reddish at leaf out also this year.
29th March 2022 and not as far on as Xi or Matthew's but it's starting.
Reddish Okushimo? amazing! mine is like this:
A lot further along than mine Romain. Yours is looking special...
Like most, if not all palmatums, the leaves have reddish tones at the tip of the leaflets when they open, but soon turn green once fully developped.
Here's mine today :
3rd April 2022 and my Okushimo is just about coping with these Spring frosts.
I put as many trees as possible under the big Prunus which is now in full leaves so as to reduce the effects of the frost...
And it has definitely worked...
6th May 2022 and my Okushimo is starting the transformation to those curled up leaves that it is so well known for. I could just sit and watch it all day long. Lol.
Yes, it's true! and it is a cultivar that resists well to the sun and the wind, for our greatest happiness.
Totally agree Romain and I wonder if Hippy fin mo that is so very similar will stand up to frosts and heat etc etc.
Your leaves have turned up very nicely. Mine are about two weeks behind yours.
Thanks for the info, good to know, I'll move mine to a sunnier place.
8th June 2022 and the dark greens of Summer is showing up on the leaves of my Okushimo. They are turning up nicely as well now.
6th July 2022, basking in the afternoon sun, my Okushimo is a favourite today in my garden.. The upward facing leaves have a sheen to them.
