is this lignum vitae healthy?

Hi All: first post to this forum. I have found a 4' tall lignum vitae at a (very reputable) local nursery. Given that lignum vitae are supposed to have extremely hard and dense wood, I'm a little concerned that the "trunk" on this tree seems very soft, more vine-like. Maybe this is normal on such a small tree, but before I drop $150 on it I would like to see if anyone has experience with this. OK, thank you in advance for your help. Pete

Did you mean to include a pic? It didn't make it if so.
