    Here's my guy - I still can't believe the speed of growth in just one year! Some of the uppermost leaves have gotten a bit frazzed but it looks overall quite healthy: the new leaves are still pale yellow, while the more shaded branches are a very healthy green:

    A better 'full body' shot showing all that growth from almost exactly one year ago. If it carries on at this pace it'll swamp the whole garden (not entirely convinced that would be a bad thing....)

    29th October 2023 and after struggling this year with the heat in June and September, my Cascade Gold is giving a nice show.

    My Cascade Gold from today 4/11/23 , a few more years and it should have filled out more evenly.

    Agree Mark, mine is the same, rather thin atm, but time will improve this cultivar I think. 'Lovely photos btw'.
