Hi everyone, it is that time again! Time spent in the garden is limited and more time is spent on the internet browsing the (old) threads on the forum and websites of growers, looking for any exciting additions. It seems every year a lot of new cultivars are introduced with more and more crazy names (a.p. Fountain of youth, swamp thing etc,). Some do seem really different and new but I was just wondering if you have bought any new additions the last couple of years which really stand out in a positive way and have even become favorites? I love favorite lists btw so if you want to mention those too, please do. My collection so far consists mostly of the ‘old time’ favorites as Mikawa, Seiryu, Shishigashira, Koto no ito, sango kaku, pixie and in my opinion, they are for good reason! I do not have many ‘recent’ cultivars but I do really like my little Sensu because of the beautiful leaf form and 3 season interesting colours. To make a long story short, next to the old time favorites, which if any, more recent cultivars do you really like and why? Or maybe you have bought one which you thought was going to be different and great but disappointed you? Probably in many cases it is a bit early to tell and it depends on what you already have in your collection, but feel free to give me your suggestions. (Sorry for the long post)..
