    So sorry to hear that Alex. But pleased you persevered and have another growing successfully. These extremes in weather are going to test our trees to the limit !!!! Love the Autumn photo.

    I can show a couple of pics from last fall. It does like full sun. This one was badly damaged by a hard frost in Spring 2017, the bark died half way around, and it was in a very bad way; but frequent copper applications managed to save it, and now the stem has recovered completely. I thought it might die, so got another one in 2018, which I just planted last fall.

    It's a very fine tree in in Spring and Summer, too.

    Alex, the leaves in your picture look very serrated compared to our plants. Are they seedlings?
