Slow Grower
Reviewed By: Tonya (Silver Springs, NV)
I purchased this tree 5-6 years ago. It has only frown a little over a foot. Now the tree is a little over two feet tall. It seems to be very hardy. I live in zone 5, were the summers are hot and the winters are cold. I have yet to see any blooms on the tree and feel that this tree could be really beautiful once it's tall enough. It puts out beautiful leaves every summer.
