This plant took it very easy for years, it is soooo slow establishing.
It stays nice and small, never needs pruning, very well mannered.
When it bloomed after 5 years, it was very very pretty.
Never bothered by any pest or disease, growing happily with some morning sun and then light shade.
I am happy with this plant.

This plant was doing beautifully until the tree guys stomped on it accidentally while removing big tree branches from our elms (it had to be done). It's not doing badly now, considering the abuse it took.
