I'm thinking of purchasing a Baldsmith to plant in front of our house. I live in zone 5a and the house faces north. I guess my questions are can the plant survive and do well and will it have the color that I would expect since it will not get much full sun? The one that I'm looking at is about 5' tall and more upright than the usual mounding shape and is very pretty. It is/was mis-marked at the nursey as a Crimson Queen but it is no more a Queen than I can fly. The nursey owner an I have been freinds for 40 + years and he agrees that it was mis-marked from the supplier. As a point of reference I have a very nice Aureum planted near the spot that I want to plant this tree and it seems to be doing well. It has been in the ground for 6 years and is nearly 7' tall. It loses a twig here and there every year but more than makes up for it in new growth. I would be very grateful for any advice as to whether this is a wise choice.
