Nemurime

Literally, a sleeping bud. It means a bud that comes out in fall or later will not burst into leaf next spring. Such a phenomenon will hit a tree that cannot obtain sufficient sunlight or ventilation, or an aged one that lacks vigor. In some cases, a bud could come out a year later. The ''nemurime'' phenomenon often strikes ''shohaku'' evergreen pine trees.
