2nd year on Little Treasure - came back strong. Seems to be a good grower, time will tell.

Mine must have been in too much shade. I had a large full one that faded down to two small eyes. I moved them into a sunnier spot under my irrigation. They started to come back. Hope they make it through the winter.

'Little Treasure' - moderate growth, but it's still in a pot. Need to find a permanent home for it.

2015 - Aug. 13. 'Little Treasure' has been grown in full sun this year (we lost an ash tree to Emerald Ash Borer) and hasn't skipped a beat.
