Thank you for your report Vincent. My 2 year old Nadia was doing great, very lush, and turned out the deer thought all of the limbs made a great tasting salad. They left 3 tall vertical limbs, which continued to grow above deer browsing level. However, that growth is so new, I dont know if it will bloom next year. At least I got a bowl full of Sweet Treat, so not all was lost.
