    This is being advertised as another cultivar developed from Orange Dream. It's certainly got the strong yellow-orange colour of its parent, with reddish tips to the new growth and very lacy leaves in what looks to be an upright habit so far. Let's see what this one does!

    Ahhh, so there's been some discussion on this one already! Hopefully we'll get some more user pictures if anyone else has been tempted by this little one in the meanwhile - I'll continue to post mine!

    I'm not sure whether it's the summer colour-change or whether it's being in a sunny spot in my garden that's done it, but look at that colour-change in only half a week! There's that orange!

    If it keeps up like this there's every chance! I'm really impressed with that bright orange: if it can maintain that over summer without frazzling then I'll be singing its praises at every opportunity!

    I like the leaf shape. Not as deeply divided as Seiryu, in the same realm as Wou nishiki maybe, but not exactly the same?

    Orange Dream heritage makes sense with those colours - but I would defo be worried about potential frazzlement with the recent colour change...

    I'm definitely keeping an eye on it and will be moving it at the first sign of frazzle, though for the time being it's happy (and much happier than my actual OD, so we shall see!) Will keep posting pics to show how it develops!

    Orange Lace as we go into summer. Still holding a lot of that orange colour, with some yellow undertones. Seems to be holding up quite well in this sunny spot with sun to around 14:00:

    Now at the beginning of July. I love the mixture of bright orange and even red at the edges of the leaves contrasted with that yellow inside. What a lovely little thing you are!
