Two recent photos between rain hail thunder and lightning!
size 2 plant
Often critized by most as being too big and remain a boring green most of the year. Wilson's Pink Dwarf is one of my favorites.
One of the first to leaf out in spring, and a colorful one at that. Bright red color slowly fades to pink, then green. The leaf size is small enough to be give a interesting texture when it turns green.
Purchased as one gallon plant last year, seems to grow very fast.
Placed against dark background, it really stands out
This has been a good dependable plant for me. It is certainly a standout in the spring, but on most days I cannot tell it from Akaji nishiki. The frist two photos are from spring 2005 when we had it planted in the ground at our old home and the thrid picture was taken a few days ago, 2006, of the same plant in a large container.
All things considered, it is a semi-dwarf, not a dwarf, but pretty strictly upright with a typical narrow vase type shape.
my tree this spring
Here is mine with spring color for 2012
Here is the Wilson Pink Dwarf in my garden. The one picture above post #6 lost all its leaves this year and looks dead just as the one pictured here did the year before. I like the tree but have had issues with it.
