rbranch17! I think what matters is how much you paid for the crepes. We just got one the trunk was not the best and it is not the cultivar that it was tagged as. It was only $5. Now I realize you probably paid alot more. Check with two reputable nursery's in your area and just compare what they have, price, size, quality. My other experience with crepes the smaller they are, not blooming, they have a high rate of being wrong cultivar. Once you compare apples to apples and all things considered did you get fair market Crepe value for your money. I personally would not buy a LARGE Crepe in anything under 20/25 gallon size with all the trunks present. A shade Crepe is too important not to get a good looking one and the cultivar you want. May your week be full of joy!
