Wonderful plants, Michael. I love that 'Kuukai' especially.

Tetsuo, I love those Hyoujunka forms a lot and what exquisitely intense colours!

I get similar damage to flowers occasionally, the culprit always seems to be very small slugs grazing on the buds.

You are correct Peter, caught the little blighters this evening munching on the flowers. They have gone for their holidays. ;)

Little swines! Glad you caught them.
Saw a sparrow sneaking up on an eranthis today.... told him what I thought of him. Maybe it is just "my" sparrows that are phantom chompers?

Maggi, watched a female Bulfinch (Pyrrhula Pyrrhula) eating the buds from a dwarf flowering cherry tree in the front garden yesterday. I opened the window several times and chased it, but it returned a few minuted later and continued the destruction. It was only about ten feet from the front window where I was watching, but it wasn't deterred,decided it was eating the buds whether I liked it or not . Don't think I will have any cherry blossom flowers this year, but I will have a nice fat bullfinch. :)

Here is a bad pic taken through the window of the culprit at work.

Michael and Tetsuo beautiful plants particular the red P1. Michael there will allway be problems with growing plant, to cold, warm, dry, to much sun e.g. and thre are also a lot of devils who like eating the leaves or flowers. I think your problem maybe can be woodlouse?

Art 600 I have other yellow, 'Kisen' is one of the best.

As you can see with 'Momosango' I use a plastic ring to hold leaves and flowers. I have bought them on a Japanes flowershop, but you can also made them with wire and they hold leaves so it hinder fungi.

Wonderful plants, Karl.  :o

I love 'Akamusha' and 'Kisen' a lot. 'Kisen' is a good yellow, indeed!

The plastic ring is a very good idea to stop fungal infection of the leaves. Hadn't seen that before.

'Balder' is one of my own Hepatica nobilis cross with filled flowers. I can see there are coming 2 red this year, also with filled flowers, but the flowers is still not full open.
'Kihou' is a japonica and the stamen are light yellow.
