Found late winter at home center ( about 4.5' tall) planted it spring 08 it grew very nicely by spring 2011 it had grown to about 6' and Its head had grown about 4 times original starting size, it bloomed beautifully around Easter. Late May 2011 transplanted, did bad job, went into shock (in a hurry, did every thing wrong fell over in wind storm that night) . Hope it makes it. It is a beautiful specimen plant
