When I first planted this new-ish cultivar in spring 2009 I highly doubted it would truly be dwarf. But now I am nearly convinced that they will be and I am completely in love with them. Mine have never been trimmed and have only reached 4' tall and 4' wide. I'm expecting them to stay under 5' tall and 6' wide since they have begun to develop a horizontal, slightly weeping growth habit.
