    My wife’s birthday present

    We went to the conservancy in Pittsburgh and my wife saw this tree and was very excited about it. She’s hard to buy for, so I figured for her birthday, I’d get her one of the trees. She was surprised. It has really taken off in the couple months we’ve had it. It sits in the sun on the patio, and it has 6 buds, one of which is going to open soon. We are very happy with this tree.

    Arrived healthy and has started growing.

    It is exactly as expected. It is too early to tell if it will produce the expected blooms but the hope is there.

    Plant is beautiful

    The plant arrived in great shape. It is holding onto its leaves. I’m looking forward to seeing it grow and bloom. Thank you!
