    One of my 'Shishigashira' that's in full shade putting on some very nice colors. It's has been kind of protected from the crazy storms and frost that we've been having.

    Pic taken tonight.

    Tonight update.

    It looks way better than its clone that's in full sun with no protection from mother nature. I'll try to get pics tomorrow or Saturday.

    My other 'Shishigashira' that's in full sun and is not as impressive as it's sibling that's in mostly shade.

    Pics taken today

    I've been holding off on getting a Shishigashira for a while now, but finally caved this week. It's so cute.

    Another one I repotted a couple of weeks ago.

    It needs some pruning on the right, I'll try an air-layer : it's either you throw away or you recycle, or give...

    17th April 2022 and at last I have some leaves to show. The sun was shining quite nicely on my Shishigashira in my garden this morning.

    These came up this morning, another little beauty that I lost I think due to the bamboo on the right, must replace one day.

    762D660C-51AC-44D7-9CF5-88353995E1FC.jpeg One from this morning, this cultivar proves popular in Bonsai. I may use it for that at some point in the future, still far too small now but I like it’s compact growth.

    Bought a nice little Shishigashira in early June and planted it right away. It decided to display some surprising growth in the last few weeks! About 12" on all branch tips. The growth pattern is much different from the rest of the plant. Is this growth spurt to be expected after transplanting a young tree?

    Good morning and welcome to the maples forum, that looks a lovely healthy specimen you have there. It should slow down over the coming few weeks. So no feeds if your tempted, as this will create soft new growth in September which you do not want.

    18th November 2022 and one of the oldest cultivars is colouring up right at the end of this Autumn season in my garden.
