They are planted around in the yard so they do get everything my yard gets in the fall. They get ample sun and are not subject to a lot of wind. Like I say, they do look really healthy, the end of the limb leaves are real shinny and have a deep reddish look while the others are a dark green. I've tried prunning them ,this year" while other years I've not pruned, neither has made any difference, but maybe this year will be different... Hope so anyway
Enjoy the Journey!
