    Haha, that's very true! Jordan may have the crown now, but as you say Summer Gold will still be going strong when we get into July and August, so I'm sure it'll win overall.

    My big Summer Gold is in full sun, and it's starting to develop that colour it's famous for. Looking forward to watching that colour deepen and spread across all the branches:

    From bright sun to rain: the same branch as in my post above, showing how the colours really pick up every bit of sun when it's out, and become so much more subtle when it's overcast:

    It definitely reacts to the light-levels around it and reflects back everything it gets: it is not normally nearly this understated!
