RE: Nioce blue color

try to remember that sunlight ... or whatever the ambient lighting was.. because it makes the blue.. really pop ... when one doesnt have a very expensive camera .. ambient lighting becomes significant .... and knowing WHEN to take the pic.. becomes almost as important.. as actually going out and doing it ...

it would have even been better.. had it not been a white/tan wall behind .... have you considered painting such.. for our benefit alone.. lol ..

That thing's awesome. Nice congested growth at the top that's going to explode.

The name is probably hyphenated Joe and nishiki versus neshiki. 'Eiko-nishiki'

when i took the pic it was cloudy.

==>>> exactly.. i can tell it was a bright cloudy.. and the glaucous white on the leaves.. is picking up the brightness.. of the clouds.. without bleaching out the blue by direct sun.. allowing the eye to see it all ...

believe it or not.. it has some potential there.. the darn trees just keep growing ...

in the next decade or so .. its going to infringe on that wall ...

unless you do some selective pruning behind.. so as to encourage it to grow out.. away from the wall ... the shape reminds me of my adcocks dwarf.. which is now.. 10 years later.. twice as big in every dimension.. which would put yours.. touching the wall ...

you might want to consider moving it.. which is why i asked if it was still potted ...
