    I've grown a specimen for 10-11 years in a bit of a damp spot in my garden. A super plant,probably 12' by 12', with fantastic, exfoliating bark. No problems.

    Beautiful little plant - the perfect item for smaller spaces, arrived in perfect condition, transplanted like a dream.

    What a beauty this is. Shot out of the ground and reached 12 ft in about 3 years. Still growing. Not bothered by snow, dry spells or heat. Has been completely trouble free. As wide as it is tall.
