Re: Opinion time
Well, it's at least 25 years old! It had a 3" diameter trunk when I planted
it and has had rich soil & plenty of water. I see these around town, and
they have been pruned to a lovely petite umbrella shape. Some of these were
planted 3 or 4 years after mine, so I think you could keep it smaller. One
thing you have to watch with these is sprouts below the graft. I also see
tree around that look like a cherry in a tutu with weeping branches forming
a skirt around upright branches from below the graft.
