Greetings fellow gardener!
I just purchased a Prunus umbellata from Nearly Native Nursery in Fayetteville, Georgia-- From the looks of it, it is quite vigorous. I am planting it in USDA Zone 7B (so, like Zone 8 for all intensive purposes)... Now that your tree has almost been in the ground for coming up on 10 years (provided it IS still there!)-- What are your comments on it, if you will-- ie how has it been for drawing beneficial insects, how tall is it, seeing from the pictures it appeared to be in partial shade, how did it flower (was it IN partial shade?)-- Etc. I am quite excited about getting this in the ground as today, 20 Jan 2013 it will be close to 62 degrees here in East Point, Ga. Thanks in advance for any questions you can answer for me and any other friendly advice you may be able to offer me.
