I can’t find a thread for Chisio so here goes.
This is not Chisio Improved.
9th June 2021 and leaves at last. You have to be so very patient this year...
@Jaybee63 how do you find the leaf size on this?
I bought a decent sized one years ago from Morrisons (!) labelled 'Chishio' that looked as if it came out of a Dutch greenhouse or similar. Leaves seem to be, on average, a little larger and slightly wider lobed than 'Shindeshojo', and it holds its colour about as long. Because of where it came from I have never been 100% confident it had the correct ID.
Mine came from James Harris at Mallet Court nursery in Somerset.
It was a few years ago and he had some really nice plants.
Yes, Mallet Court are a good nursery. I was wondering what size leaves you get on your plant so I can compare mine and see if I also have the original 'Chishio'.
There are clusters of different sizes leaves so I am attaching a few photos.
I’m not sure what the improved version looks like as “Chishio” is stunning in spring.
Photos taken this morning.
My tree also has a variety of sizes but go up to about 8cm / 3 inches for the largest leaves. Yours look smaller than that so mine is probably not a vanilla 'Chishio' after all - I have always suspected as much. Thanks @Jaybee63
I would guess so, I’ve never seen leaves anywhere near 3”
Post #2 from me below with photo . But this is under Shishio Improved and not Chishio Improved.
