Hmmmm. I think I'll put it at least 3 1/2' from the tree trunk then and
plan to divide it some point on the timeline in the future. How long did it
take for your's to get to 7' wide, Daryl? And Kitty, how long before yours
got to 5' wide?

Blessings,

My S&S got to about 5 ft wide but has diminished in recent years also from
tree roots. I just dug it out last week. I plan to rejuvenate that bed.

Bonnie,

Before the tree roots took over, my 'Sum and Substance' was about 7'
across and maybe 2 and a half feet tall. This year it was only about 4
and a half feet wide and 2' tall.

d

The one thing I didn't get into the ground was the 'Sum and Substance.'
The
pot tag said to allow for it to get 2' tall and about the same wide.
The one I remember at a local hospital and at the adult day care
facility mother attended were much larger...at least 3'X3'.  However,
some of the articles on the web had put it at nearly 4' tall and up
to 6' in diameter for a mature plant.  So just how much room should I
give this beauty?  What has been your experience with 'Sum and
Substance?'  I plan to put it on the SE corner of the walkway that
goes around the house, outside a stately old elm.
It will get full morning sun, but then mottled shade there after.

Blessings,
