        Oh – I love small-growing, three season trees (things like Crepe Myrtles don’t grow very well here because the summers aren’t warm enough) so it might just have to be on my wish-list!

    Such unique and delicate flowers! I’m told they are actually hardy here in Chicago, though I don’t think I have ever seen one. How are they in the other seasons?
