This is an extremely slow growing miniature tree. It is very attractive though. I grow mine in a container in acidic soil, taken from my own garden. It stands on top of my garage and has been doing well so far. I live in Sofia, Bulgaria, 2300 feet AMSL, Z 6b.

I have one of these planted near my pond area in a well drained sheltered location. It was browsed by deer the first year to a height of about 18" tall and has not grown since, in fact it appears NOT to have changed one iota in the past 4 years! Don't know why - it just keeps on as it is. Other than that, it's fine, but because of it's pecularities, only gets a neutral rating from me.
