One of my favourites. ( This autumn it is disappointing)
A new Koto no ito for 2012
Introducing my new Koto No Ito, bought in the fall of 2011. These pics come from mid to late March of 2012. She withstood the heat and drought this past summer rather well, despite being in full morning sun till around noon. I have her planted near the base of a 60 year old oak tree.

Mine is leafing out, and it's got flowers:
Does anyone have photos of this tree in winter? I'm looking for a bright green, max 10'-12' JM for outside a picture window, and I'm wondering what this one will look like during the winter.
I don't have a picture, but I have never been impressed with any of the linearlobums for winter structure. Certainly not for a location in front of a picture window, lots of better choices out there.
Thanks. That's kind of what I suspected, but it's good to have someone with experience confirm it. Much appreciated.
My beautiful Koto No Ito I picked up today.
My Koto no Ito from a small graft in 2011 to now. It has not grown a lot taller but filled in nicely since it has been in the ground about 2 years now. I like it a lot.
@MapleMO, good morning M, I like it a lot also. I'm picturing photo 3 to photo 5 in just a few weeks. Going to look stunning !!!
Thank you D, yes fingers crossed we do not get too many fall storms to spoil the party!
@MapleMO hear hear to that M.
My Koto No Ito
So much more advanced than mine in Hampshire. Your temperate climate in Somerset suits your trees very well indeed.
Thanks, must say I've lost a few over the years, but what I have now seem to be coming along nicely, wind is my biggest problem although I hope I've found the right position for some of them now.
I think the wind over the last couple of days has hit a lot of our trees N. But where you are it is probably a lot stronger. So you have done incredibly well to get your koto no ito to that lovely condition.
I've had trouble finding a place for mine: it exploded in size last year and mingled with its neighbours into an undefined cluster of green. Moved it away from its previous spot, and it's doing well watching over some of the little trees (albeit still going to be quite a green patch when the Beni Maiko turns....)
Nice tree, nice pot and nice backing. NICE all round Xi.
Koto no Ito showing some really fresh greens now. It's starting to put out wider leaves now the really narrow ones are all out:
Someone was talking about Kinshi the other day, but I think koto-no-ito is a stronger cultivar.
Funny to look back at the photo from May this year: I hadn't realised just how bushy this fella has become over the summer (and I've pruned it quite viciously too - I can't begin to imagine how it would look with all those original branches still there!)
One month later from the previous post, pretty much:
Some subtle hints of autumn colour. Hoping we get some more before the wind strips all the leaves away:
Definatly subtle Xi. But I like that. Its not all about the vivid colours is is it !!
Somewhat less subtle now: we're getting a proper autumn show:
