They are very beautiful trees when flowering.
I like the rocky mountains too.
Thanks for posting.

Thanks bottan, I assume they grow well at your place.

Great pictures! I planted a small seedling three years ago that perished. I'm not sure what did it in, but it immediately went into a funk after planting and I moved it the next spring. It continued to sulk and died a slow death. I got another one this summer and planted in a more protected/shaded site, but this will be my last try (famous last words). They're marginally hardy here, but I'm optimistic this one will stay put. :)

How interesting? It seems yours did not survive well.

Could we ask those who have success to share their experience?

I know it is claimed that these can thrive on not just acid but neutral and alkaline soil. They prefer organic matters. They need moist retention but quickly draining soil. They can handle shade or partial shade. They naturally grow in sheltered areas, such as a valley, against a large rock, etc.

It is also said that they thrived wonderfully in a zone-4/5 botanical garden in Finland.
