Not a difficult tree to grow and keep happy but it is frost tender as a young plant, but it's tolerance increases as the tree ages.
If purchased during the colder months, it may be leafless until Spring comes.

Some plants are planted seasonally, as their nature demands.
These will therefore only be available while they last, as we try not to plant more than will survive in a condition appropriate to be mailed out with the greatest chance of survival.
If we are out of stock (especially annuals), we will not be planting until the time is right for the particular plant, once again.
This may be up to 8 months, depending on the plant.
