    This is its second year in our garden in a container. It is in full sun and it always looks pristine. I see very little about this particular variety. Who else has GR?

    Not available in the UK, but think it would be quite a seller. Lovely long dissected leaves and form.
    I can see why it's your favourite @copperbeech, looks just right in the planter.

    You are always too kind.

    But why would you say that GR would not be available in the UK?

    Good evening @copperbeech, I say how I feel in what I see. Always have. Lol.
    After your posting I checked in my catalogues and could not find it for sale. It does happen a lot with wonderful introductions by Buckholtz, Mr Maple etc etc etc.
    It might find it's way into the UK, but as with others it can take several years. Possibly find it's way into the EU first.
    We have a nursery 'Junkers' who has contact with Tallon Buckholtz for the ghost series, so they might be the ones who would sell this first in the UK.

    Well done D, better searching than me. Next to a Red Dragon or similar, now that would look a picture in the Autumn.

    Im thinking about it. I like that it suppose to be drawf with a wide spread. I will have to ask around about it because it's now a lot of info on it.

    The dwarf side of it makes it quite a good one to have in this day and age of smaller gardens. What has @copperbeech started, Lol.
