    I'm watching yours and Xi @Xi-feng with great interest. I think my daughter might like this one for her patio......

    No growth whatsoever for my Tattoo, but on the other hand it hasn't died. On balance, I call that a win!

    Needs a year to settle for some after changing locations in my experience Xi. Looks very healthy.

    Thanks D, I hope so - I know these grow quite slowly, but fingers crossed it does a little bit of something next year nonetheless!

    It grew a bit! It grew a bit! (OK, still less than a cm of new growth, but this is the first movement it's shown in the two years I've had it. I feel like Dr Frankenstein up in the tower cackling and shrieking 'it's aliiiiiiive!')

    Tattoo looking so fresh and green. I don't know what's different compared to last year, but it seems so happy this spring:

    Tattoo in a 15” box that I picked up and planted in my yard. This one was grown at Don Schmidt nursery and purchased in North Carolina. It’s about 3’ x 3’. The largest Tattoo ive ever seen.

    Well... I went out and bought a Tattto today. haha

    My local nursery had a fresh drop of Japanese Maples and the selection, size and health of all the trees was pretty amazing... everything priced $135 USD

    There selection is pretty much untouched so I had first dibs over picking out the ones with best size and form. :)

    I bought a Amber Ghost yesterday, I've always heard it's one of the BEST in the ghost series, so obviously I needed one. Nice 5gallon 5ft tall!

    I saw this Tattoo and it just drew me in, I am in love with it's size and growth habit... I just wanted to do a little research on here first and see what people were saying about Tattoo first.

    So happy to compare my Tattoo to my photo earlier in the thread of just over one year ago and see just how much it's filled out. It just goes to show that even when you don't notice any major growth, they can be subtle and surprise you.
