I tried doing that on line, but they're all so incredibly similar that I decided never to have any of them.  The whacking great ones in America look lovely with the blossom on though.

those coloured stemmed ones don't give trouble Sara and they are nice in winter. I like to go to a nursery or GC and choose the colours myself, or beg rooted down pieces from friends.

mine probably started with the council, the plantings were just round the corner from the drive I pulled them out of.  I cut them back to hedge height but some that were left for a few years shot up to about 12 feet.

I've got these that I pulled out of the gravel drive where I .used to work. I needed a quick row of something by the road.

I should have left them where they were to be driven over and finished off.
