    What a beautiful contrast in colour. Spring colour is almost white.

    Wow, whatta beauty! What kind of light does it receive? I've recently acquired this cultivar & was told it dislikes staying too wet. Have you noticed it being finicky in this respect? Perhaps you don't have this concern in Australia!
    thanx, ginger

    This one is very 'finicky'. Lots of warm weather with lots of filtered light, good drainage, cool roots. It will get easily scorched in the heat even under filtered light and looks pretty ugly at the end of the season. It changes colour so quickly. Attached a photo only taken one week later.

    I have two Toyama Nishikis. One tends to go light green/white/pale yellow, and this one tends to go dark green/mauve/cream. Both are little jewels in the garden and are among my favorites. They have a wonderfully graceful and tidy umbrella shape. Each time I visit my ophthalmologist, I drool over his ancient 4' tall Toyama Nishiki in front of his office. His staff think I am strange because I always inspect it with a little too much attention, but it's the largest Toyama Nishiki I've ever seen, and it gives me some hope that my two tiny plants will grow some day to be big ones. This photo was taken May 4, 2007.

    This is one of my favorite JM's. It has all the main attributes I love in JM's - lacey leaves, varigation, and a combination of green/red/cream. It needs protection, but it is beautiful.

    In my eyes Hana matoi is a much more vivid color tree than toyama nishiki. Careful with either tree, it takes a quality grafter to get a good tree. There is lots of variation to each branch and a hack grafter will not duplicate the original tree.

    Some exceptionally pale pink leaves in amongst the new growth this year, though I expect them to become more like the surrounding leaves as they get older.
