Nice shape and will look even better, I should think when it holds onto it's brown leaves in the winter|!

It won't hold onto them here, Paul, only when it is in hedge form.

Oh, I assumed they did anyway, not that I've seen many growing into a tree like that, only hedges!

They use this one (the upright form) as a street tree here a lot. Not sure it's a good idea, because it does spread out with age.
