....certainly a purple leaved Betula utilis (there's one at college), but don't know of a purple var. jacquemontii.

Lovely shot of 'Genesis' Giles.

You're far ahead of us with grandiflora.  Three of us here have buds on our grandiflora "Bracken's Brown Beauty' but with the cool weather they are desparately slow to swell. If we have a stretch of 20c+ for a couple of weeks we may see them in flower by September.

This is a pic of Don, a member of our local group who looks like he's struggling with a set of propellers at our meeting last Saturday

In fact this is a bloom off his tree magnolia, Magnolia macrophylla, though he said these leaves were a bit small!

Mercy! That is really lovely...... you're not going to miss that in someone's garden are you?

 Must not have been a windy day, or Don would never have got into the meeting... he'd have been wind-surfing, whether he liked it or not.  :o

I've had a pot grown specimen of New Zealand's Celery Pine or Tanekaha (Phyllocladus trichomanoides) for many years. The leaves are in fact modified shoots or phylloclades. I find one reference to it herein, growing at Mount Usher. Is it found elsewhere in the UK?
