Jim, I follow your garden tours with interest. The T. clusiana or just showing here as well. Indeed they have a very fine red rim on the margin of the leaves. Apart from this forma clusiana I have planted several other clusiana forms such as stellata (Lady Jane) and 4 diniae forms. Interesting to see wether this red rim is typically for f. clusiana.
