Twisty Baby™ Black Locust - Robinia pseudoacacia 'Lacy Lady'

Fabaceae (Leguminosae)

2 Yrs ago I attended a Garden Tour in Cincinnati. One of the homes we went to on the tour, has this tree that was spectacular.. it was the Twisty Baby Black Locust. It was blooming, and was just wonderful to see all the softness of the leaves and blooms, and the narlyness of the twisted limbs. I had never seen it before and fell in love.

Today I went to a nice nursery down from my house, and they had one for sale. I want this tree so bad, I just want to know if anyone has any cons on this tree. It is 5 to 6 ft tall in the bucket it is in. The leaves are yellow in places as well, so I am not sure if that is from being in a container, or stress from something? They said they have had it since last year.

Anyone have any experience with this tree?
