Have had no problems with this plant purchased from local grocery store. Has grown quite a bit since purchase. This year was attacked by Japanese beetles and part turned brown. Sprayed with insecticide and plant immediately started regrowing foliage. Looks fine now.

I find this tree to be very attractive in my zone 4/5 canadian rock garden, it is low maintenance (I have not had to water it despite a fairly significant drought), and provides a great focal point to the garden. It was severely attacked by catepilars, but rebounded following treatment within 1 months time. Great addition to the garden.
