Planted 2 last year in a semi-shade, well drained, good soil. Brutal winter - cold (-30) but snow covered between end Nov - mid March. Had never planted before so was concerned wouldn't make it. To my suprise, most leaves remained to this spring and stayed deep green. Lower leaves browned as Spring took hold. New leaf growth popped in 2 days! Already has buds. Nice specimen plant.
