Score iliya!! Beautiful bark and shape of the tree.
I think for style it's just a matter of left branch, right branch back branch on the outside of bends, and leader with movement and your there, much like the zelkova leong did infront of us the other day?

It should eventually get bunches of white flowers, followed by 1cm brown single berries that are textured like a brown pear, a bit rough and sandpaperish. That's if it the same plant this www.google.com.au/search?q=Himalayan+pea...wzUJCDEMuciQe17YDQDA

That fruit is way too big. Should only be about 1cm and round.

Edit That's better. You beat me to it. :lol:

I've just dug one similar to that two weeks ago but it is a Manchurian. Very similar.
