The two ancient ones we had, one white, one red, both died and I ordered
one on line to replace them as they were bird and wildlife magnets in
our yard. I think it was Italian (chosen as it was self-pollinating and
I didn't know if there were others in the neighborhood). It did
beautifully until this year when it didn't leaf out. I checked and it
had been girdled by mice (or something). I'm going to plant another and
this time protect the trunk.
