	On this subject, having just dug up from the nursery bed the last of the 
malus prunifolia that I had grafted one and 2 years ago...I knew that there 
were some that had failed grafts ( and so were seedlings) and a couple were 
unknown grafts (for lack of tags thaat had broken off).  However, it was 
immediatly evident which were the prunifolia because of the spruce tree like 
form...a dead straight central with larger and larger little branches nearly 
to  ground on 3' 'whips'. All the grafted varieties were proper whips...just 
a single leader, not straight, with only a couple odd spaced little limbs 
near the top.
	So, are prunifolia "columnar"?
