    I think this one is shaping up ok. This is its third year from a new graft. Can't wait to see it 3 years from now. It gets full sun until 1 or 2pm. I'm thinking it's ready to go in the ground this fall or next spring.

    @LoverOfMaples good afternoon D, hope you are having a nice relaxing weekend.
    Can I ask if your Tsukasa Silhouette does OK in the pot in the ground?
    The reason I ask is that a friend lost his Katsura from doing this, as the water could not escape.
    I expect you have yours in very good drainage to allow for the water to pass through, but I thought I would ask. Hope you don't mind.
    I think you are right, this Autumn looks good for it to go in the ground. Same position ???

    Hey D. It does well. I don't let it root into the ground. I try to lift them as much as possible to make sure it doesn't happen. But u are also right, I have pretty decent draining soil so it won't get water logged if it did happen.

    Oh yeah, it will be planted in that spot since it have done so well this year there. I will definitely move it forward about a foot or 2.

    @LoverOfMaples good morning D, that's good I would hate to see the same happen to your tree as my other friends. Thought you would have it all sorted!!
    I can see why you are going to keep it there, it is set off nicely by the colour of the wooden boards.
    Look forward to seeing it planted and growing over the years on the forum.

    The beauty with this cultivar is that it can be placed with greens and or reds. It's growing really well D, is the lower right branch coming off later on on it's development?
