Default Some new Neos!

Just a few highlights from an order that arrived yesterday. I just finished potting them up earlier today:

Gwanak 冠嶽 - An Amami variety with tenzae type white fukurin variegation contrasted with deep green centers and stout leaves. This one is also a small division yet, but with two new growths I'm hoping it grows fast.






Yomeimon, 陽明門 - This variety is said to be the result of a cross between Hakubotan and an unnamed Amami plant. It has short leaves, with Hakubotan type striped variegation on the new leaves that eventually disappear as the leaves age.








Otakamaru-Shima 大鷹丸縞 - This one is the crown jewel of this order for me. There are multiple strains that go by this name, but beyond just the stripes, the best of the best have shorter leaves and clearly show the trademark characteristic of Otakamaru clearly—lower leaves with convex top surfaces.







The lowest leaf on the big growth in this last photo clearly shows the convex leaf shape characteristic. Not all strains of the variety show it as prominently.






I also got a couple new decorative pots in the order. I popped a few plants into them temporarily for some photos.

These pots were pretty moderately priced.

An extra bonus I guess? I'll post pics of that one again once it blooms.

Love them. The otakamaru shima really is stunning. What other varieties with that leaf shape?

I love the 2nd pottery piece, exactly the style + shape I think I want to see if I can have made locally. What is the variety in that pot?

Hmm, Otakamaru and it’s various mutations do. Other than the shima, Shigyoku, I think, which is a sumi variant.

That pot is made using raku techniques by a Korean potter. The variety is Seoringeum.

thanks!

coincidently the ceramicist I know is korean (-american) and utilizes various asian techniques. However, I thought raku is japanese? Are neo pots from korean typically like that one, bit more cylindrical with the legs as low horizontal pieces? or is that a more modern style updated look?

Ya know, I forgot what otakamaru was then looked it up and I know that one, never noticed the leaf shape being particular and those vendors that have it listed never noted this feature. interesting. the combo of leaf shape, growth habit and variegation does make your shima form striking.
