    In the southwest corner of the garden, fully exposed to sun, wind, and the cold winter. Any wonder why this is a slow grower?

    Ricky - when you say slow, how slow ? :confused: How long has it been planted in the ground ? :)

    Very nice coloring. :cool:

    Looks like a Nestor sport.

    Another beauty....
    Has anyone here ever tried grafting one of these slow growers onto a fast growing rootstock???

    Moose - In the ground at least 8 years. The plant was from a 3-gallon.

    Definitely a cultivar that I have not encountered often! At the rate it is growing in Ricky's yard, it is no wonder why there are not alot of these plants around. :(

    Be assured that it is on the Moose Land wish list. Very nice Ricky, thanks for taking the time to post your photo. :)

    Peyton, my first Lucha was grafted onto an Andreanum. Now, 4 -5 years later, it's still the same size it was when I got it.
