Owner's comments

Spreading growth habit. Average resistance to pests. Average resistance to diseases. Particularly tolerant of cold, semi-shade or dry climate. Long flowering season and cold-hardiness greatly reduces the risk of all blossom being open at the same time and killed by a late frost. ** Tree removed in early 2010 due to needing the space for other projects **
