'Cherry Tart' was quite new when I last posted a pic of it. I love the way it has grown.

Very nice. We bought one for my mom when we were visiting this spring, then went back to the nursery and bought one to carry home (flying) ourselves.

2015 - July 25. This year it was in near full sun because we had to remove a diseased ash tree. I moved it fairly early in the season into a slightly shadier spot, but not before it had wilted in the sun. I also took two divisions from it when I had it lifted.

2016 update - July 23. Much happier this year in a shadier location.
