Re: Some help please

I got mine from Eastern Plant Specialties, same tree.  I'm thinking now that
it wasn't a zone problem but a site problem.  No tree ever did well in that
particular spot.  The redbud I put there died.  The Yellowhorn just never
really developed.  I think possibly voles had a route through there.  Now I
have a blue rose of sharon there after having nothing in that spot for
several years.  It seems to be doing ok.  But I would much rather have had
the Yellowhorn.  May just have to try again.
