It grew well in Augusta, Ga, but was constantly plagued with scale insects. I finally took it out, because I don't like spraying constantly and it isn't that desirable a tree to me. The Jacksonville Zoo made similar comments about the constant battle with scale. Maybe a little further north, it wouldn't be a problem.
