Just wanted to let those who have this wonderful tree to know that my father was the cultivator.. Ross passed away back in 2008. Unbeknownst to his family, we found out about this 2 years after his death. He was a wonderful Gardner and landscape artist.. Please keep me posted as to how this tree is growing..

I have a year old plant and I am happy to see it's definitely going to be a weeper. Lateral branches are drooping and I have to keep staking up the leader. It's going to be a beauty. Seems to grow quite quickly.
