I have attempted this plant on 3 different occasions over the past 5 years.
The longest I was able to keep one was about 2 years.
It is difficult to grow in my zone 8a garden as the summers are so hot and humid.
Apparently in it's native Nepal it does well at an elevation of 1500 meters (a little over 4900 feet) .
I am going to try one more time to grow this as it has been done successfully at JC Raulston Arboretum about 2 hours from here.
You can find this plant in specialty nurseries from time to time.

This is an extremely interesting tree but painfully slow. You must be patient and it may be a bit hard to locate since it is very new to the US trade but, worth looking for.
