tallest branch is about 8' tall. It is at least 3 yrs old. I live in zone 5 in Muncie, Indiana. I got the start from my daughter's tree in Indianapolis, Indiana. The house has been sold and the original tree that was beautiful every Fourth of July has been taken down. We had to look it up to find out what kind of tree it was. I will put up with the messiness for the beauty. Hope to get her a start from mine for her new house!
