    Almost 2 weeks later, it looks OK.
    The leaves that stayed green look very healthy, a few new leaves have spouted and the buds on the leaves that were baked look healthy too. I will probably lose a few small branches, but I think it will thrive again next year :

    I'm glad to see it's doing well Alain. I was wondering how it turned out after the root work was done this time of year.

    Yes, that's kind of extreme surgery, but as you can see in the first photos, it was rootbound, nothing to compare with what you showed in another thread.

    So, since we were beginning to have rain after a very dry period, I thought the roots would choke if the soil got to wet and there wasn't enough leaves left for photosynthesis.

    I slip-potted a few seedlings on the same day, the soil of this one was dry, except for about one inch at the top, and in the coarse lava rock that was at the bottom. I was pretty sure it would suffer further damage in winter if there was a period of frost after rainy days.

    Fingers crossed. Anyway, it used to be rare here, but now it's available from various online providers - tough I'd much prefer to keep that one !

    So far, so good (the red leaves on the left are from a cutting from A.p.p.) :

    I didn't notice so much difference between these seedlings, all from 'Ryusen', that germinated in 2020, except the more or less weeping habit. But I'm surprised by the diversity of the new leaves this year :

    A couple of branches will need to be removed, some of the are about dead. But it has flowers again :

    If the temperatures go below -3°C, I'll put it on the ground, under the stairs, but I'm not sure I'll have to...

    Is yours going to stay in a pot to cascade Alain ?

    Yes, I think it's the only way.

    I saw some grafted high on a straight trunk. I much prefer the natural look of trees. So I have this corner of a staircase, and I think it's the best place for it.

    Tere's a low branch that rests on the soil : I'll airlayer it. I'll keep you updated.

    Of course the previous pot was much more elegant, but when the leaves are fully developped, it won't be a problem I think.

    Meanwhile, some 500 km south, about 300 miles :

    In a way, it's a kind of immigrant : remember I bought it at a supermarket in England for £10... ;-) Excellent find.

    I finally found a Ryusen after looking for one for such a long time. I've popped it into a very tall planter, so all the more room for those branches to trail:
