We purchased 2 of these 6' tall in pots from a coastal nursery near the ocean in Waldport Or.
Both the wind and, I believe, the salt were very damaging to them and we got them for half price. This their third year in the ground and they're really taking off with no special care.
Looking at the pictures from San Francisco reminded me of the damage we saw on ours when we purchased them. We live 13 air miles from the ocean so the salt and wind are not a factor here.
