That is very true. I just love every picture I've seen of your garden, it's wonderful! Your doing a great job. That's the look I'm trying to accomplish around my boarder but I'm working with way to large of an area with way too small of trees and I can't afford to keep buying them, especially large ones lol. Are yours planted with mature size in mind or do you plan to prune or move as they grow through the years? I think that's part of the reason I'm having such a hard time is I'm trying to plan for the future but that means it looks very bare for now and probably will for many years until these slow growers start to fill out the space. The more pictures the better! Thanks again for helping me get a better idea. I'm getting really mixed results trying to find out what this tree looks like in summer. Some places that sell them say green, some say maroon and of all the pictures I've found it looks more on the green side but the ones that have this maroon color are beautiful. It must be sun exposure related. Yours looks very nice right now. The only other issue I've found is the form seems more bush like than what I thought. Some pictures it looks perfect but a lot more I've found are much more bush like than what I want. I'll get this tree either way because the spring color alone is something unlike anything else I have but I'm going to keep searching for this spot for now. Or like JT1 said, maybe I'm just asking for too much out of one tree. I might start thinking about adding a couple of these new trees to the boarder to add many more colors and then just leave this spot open to view the whole boarder instead of trying to have one tree as a display.
