3rd July 2021 and my Moonrise at it's best now. It has enjoyed the cooler conditions so very much.
5th July 2021 and another request for two photos of my Moonrise.
19th July 2021 and I wanted to show my Moonrise in 32° C heat. They can cope as long as they get watered well.
Moonrise is so lovely:
Less lime green now and more gentle yellow going into the autumn:
One of the slowest to wake up in my garden (my slightly larger Moonrise is still budding, so it'll be even later)
The golds are really showing now. This sunny day brings it all out.
I posted my smaller Moonrise the other day, which is mainly green/gold at this ime of year. My bigger moonrise, only 6 feet from the other one, is noticeably behind in terms of leafing out and is decked out in reds and salmon-colours!
Just opening up…
I love the contrast between yours and Xi's. Soooo much variety in colours.
20th April 2022 and I can now join in on this thread for this year with a photo.
My two very different Moonrises, taken on the same day and pleaced quite close together in the garden. Love the contrast of the salmon-red Moonrise against the dark leaves of the Bloodgood:
(And here they are together: pink Moonrise in the foreground and gold-green moonrise off in the background. Weird trees!)
Lovely Xi, but photo 3 is a real keeper.
My two Moonrises continue to be night and day:
The little one is developing normally, starting to bring in some of those lovely red tips to the new growth:
Big Moonrise has decided that this is going to be the year of pink (and I still love this pairing with Bloodgood in the background no matter what colour Moonrise decides to put out)
OMG Xi... they both look amazing.
7th May 2022 and my Moonrise was looking very nice this morning in my garden next to me with my cup of coffee.
So was having a morning walk in the garden. My Moonrise is looking particularly happy. I only received this one last early summer so I’m not too familiar with how it looks. The heat wave last year had me terrified so I put it in a very sheltered spot however I have read it does well in sun. So I just moved it to a less protected more sunny area of my yard. We will see how it fairs cause it seemed very happy in the original location
Hi Lisa. Moonrise does like a fair amount of protection. So do keep an eye on it in the new position.
It's very pretty btw. Think you will love it for years and years.
Does it really. Some things I read said full sun. But I’ve learned that’s not often the case, I think in summer I’ll have to bring it back cause the walnut tree that offers the protection I had heavily pruned last summer
I think the best way is to watch it carefully Lisa. It will tell you of it starts becoming unhappy.
11th May 2022 and a little rain has helped my Moonrise really come to life.
18th May 2022 and as the sun came up my Moonrise did not disappoint.
And the old switcheroo has happened: my big stunningly-pink Moonrise has settled into some relatively drab (but healthy, thankfully!) colours, while the little one has decided to show off and is putting out gorgeous red tips of new growth everywhere you look. I know some people stick to just one of each cultivar, but this is why I like to have multiples of my favourites -- I wouldn't want to have missed out on either of these trees this year.
28th May 2022 and my Moonrise is showing signs of a very good year. I wonder if that means a good Autumn colour as well !!! You never know with the shirasawanum's.
Big (formerly pink) Moonrise settling into an almost creamy pink-yellow.
