    Unusual leaves, very shiny when coming out. Maybe a dwarf?

    Here are some more pictures of Holata leafing out in spring. The colors and shinyness is very true to life, it's quite amazing looking. It certainly seems to be a dwarf form.

    Very pretty and unique! Love the coloring too. How old/big is it?

    Hi Andrea,

    I got it in 2011 as a 2 year graft, but the scion was pretty large to begin with. It hasn't put on much height since then, I guess it's around 2.5 ft now. The leaves are small, maybe 1 - 1.5 inches across now, as they mature throughout the summer they get to around 3 inches. I planted it late in 2012.
