    With all this sad winter weather I thought it would be fun to get a new favorite thread going. Now we all know it's been done a bunch and usually no one can pick their top 3 or even top 5 but I think if we break it down into a bunch of catagories we can get a pretty fun thread going and help give us ideas to add to our spring list. Here is what I've come up with for catagories.

    1. Upright green

    2. Upright red

    3. Upright varigated

    4. Upright reticulated

    5. Dissectum green

    6. Dissectum red

    7. Dissectum varigated

    8. Dwarf green

    9. Dwarf red

    10. Dwarf varigated

    11. Linearlobum grean

    12. Linearlubum red

    13. Shirasawanum

    14. Japonicum

    15. Bark interest

    * Bonus

    I figure one bonus for anything that doesn't match a catagory or one extra you just have to have additional on the list. It might be best to just copy and paste the list and then just add your choices like this:

    1. Upright green - Osakazuki

    2. Upright red - Trompenburg

    3. Upright varigated - Asahi Zuru

    4. Upright reticulated - Amagi Shigure

    5. Dissectum green - Viridis

    6. Dissectum red - Inaba Shidare

    7. Dissectum varigated - Hana Matoi

    8. Dwarf green - Mikawa Yatsubusu

    9. Dwarf red - Beni Fushigi

    10. Dwarf varigated - Olsens Frosted Strawberry

    11. Linearlobum grean - Koto no ito

    12. Linearlubum red - Beni Otake

    13. Shirasawanum - Jordan

    14. Japonicum - Mai Kujaku (Aconitifolium)

    15. Bark interest - Sango Kaku

    * Bonus - Ryusen

    I had a hard time choosing in a couple catagories but picked based on which ones are performing the best as far as growth and least die back. Your turn!

    Even with 14 categories plus a bonus, it's still difficult not to leave out a favorite or two.
    1. Upright green; Sango Kaku
    2. Upright red; Sumi Nagashi - love the color transition through the seasons, ending with the best blood red color.
    3. Upright variegated; Beni Shichihenge
    4. Upright reticulate; Kasagi Yama
    5. Dissectum green; Waterfall, (honorable mention - Irish Lace)
    6. Dissectum red; Tamukeyama
    7. Dissectum variegated; Filigree - beautiful subtle variegation, though difficult to grow in my climate. Tried three times.
    8. Dwarf green; Mikawa Yatsubusa
    9. Dwarf red; Beni Hoshi
    10. Dwarf variegated; Butterfly
    11. Linearlobum green; Koto no ito
    12. Linearlobum red; Red Pygmy
    13. Shirasawanum; Jordan - yellow spring color is outstanding.
    14. Japonicum; Aconitifolium
    Bonus; Imposible to leave out Shishigashira.

    You guys both had Sango Kaku for upright green and that got me thinking, bark interest should be it's own catagory so I edited my first post. Feel free to edit your posts and add one more favorite for upright green.

    I had a hard time choosing on a few like Filgree but mine is too small to be a favorite yet but I'm sure it will be as it grows more. I'm going to have to get a Beni Hoshi now. Good picks so far!

    1/ those that survive my winter climate (zone 8) without disfiguring the premisces because they have to be wrapped in protective textile
    2/ those which don't look like the survivors of a forest fire in August
    3/ those that display a wide range of colours from leafing out to winter.

    ;°)

    So, though quite modest in summer, A. p. 'sango kaku' may be top of the list then, and A. p. 'Butterfly' too: both are very resistant to dry summers, and the colour displays is not spoiled throughout the growing season.

    ^ Oh do I hear you on point 2, Alain! :) Good to know about Sango kaku and butterfly - we have very hot dry summers, so maybe I'll have to look into those.
