  1. Joyce Bentley - Aug 12, 2015
    Georgia (Hardiness Zone: 7)

    Planted as small tree 8 years ago. Now about 20 feet tall. Has beautiful narrow shape. Blooms this year were incredible, and blooming period lasted about 6 weeks. Planted in half shade in North Atlanta area. Despite shade, fall colors are wonderful. My only regret is that I thought this was another form of the tree and planted it a little too close to our house. Plant it, give it room to grow, and love it!!
