There are several cultivars that are hard to tell apart. They vary in height from 15 feet to about 60 feet. From the sound of it, the tree may only reach 15 feet in height. It may be one of the shorter cultivars.

Feeding with an all purpose 10-10-10 every 3 or 4 months or so can keep it looking its best.

Here is an article that will give you more information on the tree:
