It is beautiful, really. I bough myself Sangokaku this year - but it's tiny comparing with yours.
Beautiful things, yes - but what about that broken pot? is there a hidden beauty somewhere within? lol

i think its in great shape, i asked if you shaped it because two of mine are growing well, quite healthy but not great shapes.
the original seems quite one sided but now its filled out its perfect.

Cheers Ph, Cs & Sl, this one really does work its way well through all the colours and differs each year from light green to darker to red to pink or yellow depending on how the season goes : )
