Korean Hornbeam

These two photos were taken 7 days apart on 12/6 and 12/13/14.

I've had this tree for a little under 9 years and it's hardly grown a half inch in that time.

Here are all the photos of this tree, including in leaf.

Just for fun, prunus mume.  Training started in 2011, photo taken yesterday, peak of its best blooming year yet.

Well why not, right? :)

Here is my Brazilian Raintree. At least 3 years from being finished IMO.
