Searched high and low to find this tree for sale in a nursery in the Hudson Valley of NY. Finally located it at Story's Nursery in Freehold, NY. It is not a tree you find commonly in upstate NY but I saw photos someone had posted on a garden site and was absolutely blown away by the fall color. We have the sugar maples that turn a glorious red in the fall but I wanted something different and that would also attract birds. This tree satisfied my needs. We planted it in the early fall of 2013 and we had a very tough winter. I am happy to report that it came through the winter unscathed. Leaves are a beautiful glossy green and it is starting to set fruit. So far, so good. Can't wait to see what it will look like in the fall.
