I don't prune this one hard, it's not as strong growing as most of those cultivars. Yes it turns black at the tips, yes it's a dull plant.

I threaten it with the shredder but it's still there because every so often it looks stunning. Not often, but just enough to avoid wipe out. 

I just cut off the black bits

For a while they can be moved but I'd need heavy machinery to move mine now.

they're not all the same size. My yellow one was about 10 foot across till I removed a few of the outer branches so we could use the path. The red one more like 6 foot. Both considerably taller than me. Others are mere babies yet

Check out the plant's native habitat, not those who write on web and in books. Mis-information gets copied on.

and agree with pp.

No idea re the specific plant, alkaline soil here

what is this tree?

limes (Tilia not citrus fruit)

They don't grow that shape naturally and you can choose other trees to treat the same way

I can't see the pic very well but that looks very sick. It might be worth cutting it right back to see if it grows new, healthy leaves. I had one that looked like Cardinal, though it had a different name. They're not as robust as the traditional Aquilegia vulgaris. Mine died
