Why to I continue to grow this beast? It is damaged by frost most winters here. The cost to have most of the frost damaged leaves removed every year is $50. It grows out around 6 new leaves in summer only to get damaged the following Dec/jan. I am really thinking of paying $250 to have it removed and be done with it. If you want to talk me out of it here is your chance. Here it is before the freeze last week. Still showing some damage from last Jan.
