Looks nice do you intend to plant it out, I wonder how long it will thrive in a container.

Thanks Bjs, no I plan to prune it in the winter and keep it in the half barrel, I'm hoping it won't mind too much!

Yes very much like it Karen...maybe not so deep a colour.

Will you make crab apple jelly with them. It's a lovely clear pink jelly even though the fruit is yellow. I bet you would get a couple of good jars from it.

Lovely :-), perfect name too, I also love the small tree in the background is it an acer?, I've zoomed in but can't be sure, lovely shape :-)

Hi Kathy, yes it is a beautiful little tree, Cryptomeria japonica elegans, this is it's winter colour. In spring and summer, it's bluey green. It has really soft foliage and will soon be too large for it's container. I've a conifer to dig out before I can plant it out though....:((

You remember it Karen! It's about 4ft now, and stunning colours all year round, it would look fab as a specimen tree in your garden too.
