Initial Notes:

Yes... I can hardly believe it, but I spent the $$ after finding one of these (hard to find!!). Yikes. That's what credit cards are for. Will be building a small planter container just for this plant.

has moderate leaf damage from freeze... will probably make it through the winter, but not without some pretty disfiguring damage that will take many many years to go away... bummer!!!!

been leaning more and more towards wall, to nearly the point of falling over... so tied up to a rebar in middle of planter.. hope roots are rotting.. maybe getting too much water this spring. Will need to stop watering that planter.
