They are beautiful, how big does it get? I don't like anything cupped because it fills up with leaves. Sad This one might be worth the trouble! Love those leaves, is it in full shade?

Mine doesn't cup well at all, and it's going on its sixth summer this year. I think I got a dud.

Duane,

That's a pretty one, but in my garden Love Pat is a much better one. It's taller, bluer and nice cupping.

I have both Abique Drinking Gourd and Love Pat -- My choice is Love Pat! But I like them both... Lovey dubby Lovey dubby

And speaking of leaves -- mine dont fill with leaves -- they seem to catch "helicopter" from the Maple trees and little bits of things that fall from trees... Blinking Blinking

That is what I thought. I have too much junk falling from the trees, this year seems to be more catkins than normal. Blinking

I've come to the conclusion that a mature tree is a messy tree!
