    Beautiful.

    And no, it's not on my wish list : my son finaly came today with a brushcutter and after turning my wild jungle in a (just) recovering garden told me "You really must get rid of some of yur trees,.."

    Er... ^_^

    My 'Johin' is turning green. That's the end of the lovely bronze until next Spring. But I enjoyed it this year (2020) whilst it lasted.

    I know this is a 10 year old thread BRUMP....but is anyone growing this with afternoon sun ?
    I really love the various colors of Johin and OP has stated apparently what seems like full sun siting .

    Good morning @mobiledynamics I've had Johin for several years and it gets Summer morning sun and afternoon till 4pm.
    It has a wonderful colour and especially in Spring.
    Here are a couple of photos I took of it leafing out a few minutes ago.

    Anyone have any good fall color pictures of Johin? Such a lovely cultivar! I found one available in my town, hoping to convince my aunt to let me plant it at her house so I can observe it. Ha. :)
