    Hey y'all!
    I purchased this A.P. dormant in February from a local nursery. It has been a joy since it first started leafing out. Now in mid-June it is still showing the lime green and reddish-pink new growth that has been almost constant. The horizontal growth pattern is fantastic, too. My question is this....what is it???? It was labeled "Yuri hime" but after checking a couple books and then looking on this forum...there is no mention of the astonishling beautiful pink/red coloring on new growth at all. It has quickly become one of my favorites & I treasure it even without an accurate identification but would love to know what it really is.
    Thanx, Ginger

    Yurihime is apparaently a very small shrub only really suitable for bonsai or in a small pot at most
