The cultivar that had been budded on this tree died within a few years of planting and the rootstock remained alive and subsequently grew. The cultivar did flower in the early years, but I have no photos of that. Symptoms associated with the demise of this scion included a black slime oozing from the grafted area prior to its death. The scion had flowered the previous season and had given no indication of potential graft incompatibility at that stage. The rootstock was not removed for various reasons and some years later began to flower. It produced very large flowers, not like any other in the collection and was observed for a number of years.
