I was excited to find a Koto no ito JM this weekend. I have to keep JMs in a garage over the winter, but despite this extra work, I love them and find it very hard to resist getting more. The negotiations with my husband for garage space are ongoing...
Koto no ito
Koto No Ito is one of my favorites because it does surprisingly well here even with a little bit of sun in the afternoon. I really enjoy the spring and fall colors. My only complaint would be that sometimes the late summer/early fall growth gets a little lanky looking.
this is one of my favorites as well - you sure have been busy there granite with the new arrivals!
Bill, your praise for this plant in the past is one of the reasons I was looking for it!
Hmmm, not getting any hits when I Google that name...
I get a bunch of hits for it: http://www.google.com/#sclient=psy-ab&hl=en&safe=strict&q=japanese+maple+otome+zakura&oq=japanese+maple+otome&gs_l=hp.1.0.0i30.749.2691.1.49188.8.131.52.0.0.0.218.1596.0j5j4.9.0.les%3B..0.0...1c.1.veyzGuJszwo&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&fp=45ead3988c9fbbbc&biw=989&bih=607
