I have only had this tree in the ground since last summer, but it's been a pleasure to watch it change colors through the spring. It is full and lush and has more shades of red, orange, and yellow than I could have hoped for. Thus far, it has shown no issues with heat or challenging clay soil. Highly recommend!
