I have 3.

They are about 3 weeks ahead of last year in bud break.

'Ogon' about half way extended.

'Miss Grace all they way.

'North Light' half in... broken bud with some leaf extension.

Enjoy

'Ogon' Grew 3 ft. last year. Will burn first year in my Kansas Zone 5. Nothing to worry about. It will bounce right back next year with no burn. Good to -20. Yellow color holds all summer.

Nice specimens Dave.
Please rename 'North Light' into 'Schirrmann's Nordlicht' which is the original name given to this conifer.
It was found as a witches' broom on a 'White Spot' by my German friend Winfried Schirrmann.

'Schirrmann's Nordlicht' looks great...I love those stout branches on that dwarf plant.
