March 28, 2021: This was collected in central Pennsylvania. Height before being dug/chopped was probably about 10'.

@March 30, 2021: Potted into equal parts pumice, DE, and fir bark. Very few fine roots remained after trimming. Bark/skin on the large roots was very easily damaged on this species. Chop site was sealed with cut paste.

May 1, 2021: Buds are emerging. Many are emerging near the base and most have been intentionally rubbed off. Small black caterpillars of some sort were seen on this and were possibly eating some buds.
