    Just a year out with a BIG start but it seems very fastigiated and has magnificent fall color.

    I planted 5 gallon pots of 2 red rockets and 1 super sonic last fall. They are doing wonderful this spring with full foliage. Time will tell how these trees do in my area at 6500 feet and long winters. So far so good.
