My Kiyohime is well on its way to full leaf. I find the lush, fresh early spring growth very satisfying and a welcome relief from a long wet winter,
The tree still has a way to go as it slowly fills out following the loss of a big back branch a number of years ago during a summer storm.
I have re-potted this year but I think it needs a better pot. I have gone off the white/ivory pot as I don’t think it does much for the tree.
