This dwarf cultivar is new on the market. There is a large number of quality mail order nurseries like Wayside Gardens and big wholesale nurseries like Proven Winners and Monrovia Nurseries selling it to retail nurseries. I've only just seen it as a patch along a walkway at Jenkins Arboretum in southeast Pennsylvania so far. It has some glowing reports of being a really pretty little woody plant that is reliable. It still has a patent on it and is not supposed to be reproduced by anyone without permission.
