I've had my Cloud 9 for about 17 years, and so far, it's a small tree, about 10-12' high, 10-12 wide, with very nice form. It has at least twice as many blooms as the wild-type white and a generic pink one planted all in the same sunny location - full sun all day. I never water or fertilize it. Right now, in March of 2018, it is absolutely covered in buds on every branch, while you have to search for buds on the pink and white trees next to it.
