It was growing John, but not thriving. I had to clean up the dead bark region.
And I've just had the worst luck this yr. Most of my collection is thriving, but some of my conifers have had nothing but problems. And I might loose an awesome Itoigawa and that JBP I got from Brussels. All three together I'm loosing $1,000 worth of material. Pretty demoralized to say the least.
