I am looking to get 1 or 2 of these to plant in a few weeks. Spring Hill ships them in 4" pots, so I imagine the trees will be very small. They also say that they grow 3 - 4 feet per year. Assuming the tree is 6" tall when shipped, can I really expect a 3' to 4' tree in 2017?
I know that fall is the perfect time to plant, but I am also worried about the winter for such a small tree.
