I have three two trees that I really enjoy watching grow. Three years ago I planted this Capalta tree from a seedling that a fellow blogger sent me.
It has grown to about 6.5 feet, the leaves are very large and look almost tropical. This is the first season it has flowered.
It will probably grow to 20 feet and hopefully shade our front windows.
Additionally I really enjoy my Japanese Maple that I bought about 5 years ago, it was on the isle of markdowns--she looked pretty sad. I got her into the ground and she looks wonderful in our back yard. I love the purple color!!
