We planted our first one, that seems to be a real midget already in 2005. Another was planted in one of our new flowerbeds in ‘07. Both are well and show a lot of promise. During the spring of ‘08 we adopted two quite tall specimens, that will live by the forest in dappled shade. One of these is already flowering!
