I've just obtained several recent Japanese introductions. One of them is 'Yamato hagoromo', introduced by Ganshuku /Masayoshi in 1989, is a selection from 'Hagoromo' seedlings (have you guys ever seen seeds in your hagoromos???). It is slightly dwarf with short internodes. I am told that the leaves are flushed with red or brown in the spring, later turning deep green like ordinary 'hagoromos'. What caught my eye were the outstanding colors of the new summer growth, as shown in the pictures taken last week. I will post the spring growth next year. Regards, Gomero P.S.: What's wrong with the forum?, I cannot upload pictures.
