    Couldn't agree more G. And what better way to start one with your amazing and delicate specimen.

    Always a worry to see if they make it, but yours is looking stunning.

    ThanksD! I liken it to the Hunger Games, and tell all the bare little trees at the end of November "may the odds be ever in your favour!" before I leave them to it... fingers crossed this year they all seem to have come through unscathed!

    I keep thinking I should get this cultivar. Yours and @wind-borne specimen is convincing me more and more.

    If you are looking for a nudge in that direction mine haven't started leafing yet. LOL

    A couple from last fall where my smaller one achieved full color though a bit more orange, the larger one was stripped bare before peaking.

    It's a stunner G. Just floats.... and the setting in your garden is just to die for.

    I find lower branches are quite attractive when fully leafed out as seen further up thread, for how long?
    The lowest branch just above graft a few inches above ground will definitely not be forever but I doubt you can even see that though it's about 2' long.
