Re: 'Sum and Substance?'

Mine was planted about 15' from the tree trunk and I suppose it hit 7' across in year 3 or 4. It looks a lot better if it's Not divided, unless you need the extra. The leaves themselves get bigger, not just that the plant spreads. S and S doesn't seem to spread outward very quickly.

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?
