This tree it tall and thriving, in 2017. I think it was 2013 when the photos above were taken, and for some reason I never finished the post I started about it.
Holly and I were out looking at it the other day and I said I didn't know where it's mom-plan was. She turned and pointed and said "right there..." where there used to be a tall stump, when we first moved in, and she said it used to bloom right on the stump.
That stump has been gone for years. Either, maybe, a seed survived, or maybe, possibly, this tree came up from the roots of the parent tree. It's tall and healthy, though!
