Red surprise
Reviewed By: John (Temple, Texas)
I have planted many trees at this point from Gurneys, and this one promises to be a showy tree. It came with lots of root and hearty stems. About 18 inches. Soil is the key here in Texas. I had to amend mine with three types. Clay, organic, and peat moss all combined. The tree loves it and already has an inch of growth after a week. Fertilizer helped also.

Red Twig
Reviewed By: Brian (Colorado Springs, Co)
"I love these plants. Right now, mine are surrounded by a couple of inches of snow. They really stand out. Plan to add more in the Spring. I did lose one plant because of poor drainage. They don't like soaking in water!"

Wonderful Bush
Reviewed By: L (Eastern, Oregon)
I have planted several of these bushes and have no complaints. After planting the first one they became my favorite. They grow at a good pace (I trim them down a couple times a year to keep them at about 6') and fill out nicely. The red twigs in the winter are wonderful.
