I have this one, but it is small and young. Hopefully I will see all those amazing color changes in 2018.

This photo was taken last week, and I can see a bit of mottling on it's older leaves.
Hurray!

I am really looking forward to this coming spring Patty. Mine is just a young offset at this point, but I think next year it will show the crazy coloring it is know for.
