I’m told the name of this in French is l’orgueil de Chine. I just think it’s pretty. And, they’re hardy! I came out of my house one morning after a stormy night and found that the tree had fallen over and half of its roots were showing. So, I propped it up with sticks and bricks and dirt, insisting on doing it my way, using the laws of physics, much to my friends’ disgust. It fell over again in the next storm, much to my disgust. My friends redid it, and it’s stayed up, pretty much straight, and still alive after 2 months.
