WOW... Excellent bob. That is some good height and its looks very healthy too. The gravel also compliments the t-rex too. Thanks for the pic bob. Is march normal time for t-rex growth to start?

This is only my second full year with it San. But I've had a look at my 2010 pics, the earliest shot I have is 16th March, so I guess its about the same as last year going by this pic.

Actually I'm wrong 16042010 is April not March (it's late:roll:)
so it's a month earlier than last year.

Its amazing how much the size has changed in just 2 years! Just shows how much the weather has changed this year and how early we have had spring too. Compared to last year.

I've been wondering if your form is more hardy not less Mr List. Mine (also less deeply cut lobes) remained in leaf after the long cold spell down to -13.8 with no protection except a bark mulch.
