Your Purple is lighter than your Amber, what a year!!!
Haha, isn't it an odd one, and we're not even properly into autumn yet! Can't wait to see what happens next!
Looking at this weather I think its going to be a November show. It's 20 ° C here atm, so strange.
I think that wouldn't be so bad - a bit of colour into the dreary months of the year! Let's hope there's no harsh weather to make the leaves fall before they give us that display!
Purple Ghost turning redder now towards the end of the year:
Purple Ghost starting to wake up:
A massive favourite on the forum worldwide and your photos today is Im sure going to convince more to buy this one. Quite heat tolerant as well I have found.
12th April 2022 and I'm pleased to say that my Purple Ghost has started to show itself.
Fuller leaves now, coming into those vivid colours:
Most peoples favourite Ghost. And you can see why. I hope mine is as beautiful as yours in a few days time.
I'm sure it will be, D -- can't wait to see it!
Next weekend the leaves should be fully there.
More of those vivid colours:
Beautiful Xi. I said this weekend would see mine fully out. I'm now changing that to next weekend. So so slow this year.
Oh, it's going to be worth waiting for (but it does take some patience when you're excitedly watching and waiting for them to leaf out, doesn't it?)
I'm the same every Spring. But I think we all are .
April 26th 2022 and I have some leaves, not many I grant you, but the ones I have are OK. I think it's going to be a troublesome year for my Purple Ghost, as a few branches do not look too healthy. Some severe pruning out might be needed in a few weeks. I will update....
Oh that's a shame D, I hope you can sort it out.
Thanks N. One of those things with these cultivars I'm afraid. But I will persevere with it. Tbh I dont think the trees are liking this dry April. One days rain only this month here in Hampshire. So much for April showers...... think that's definitely a thing of the past nowadays.
My replacement specimen that I received last week, I'm determined to have more success with this one.
Think I might be going down that route N... That looks healthy, now kid gloves for the next couple of years !!
Purple Ghost nestled in between the bright greens of my Viridis and Shishigashira... which only brings out the purple colour all the more:
Love that placement Xi. They were made for each other.
11th May 2022 and it's taken some time, but the leaves are doing what they do best on this cultivar,' dazzle '.
20th May 2022 and as the sun was so bright first thing, I thought a photo of above and below the leaf with the sun shine through.
