Has anyone attempted to grow this tree in the Chandler/Phoenix Metro area? It it possible? If not, are there any suggestions for similar flowering trees that would work here?
Sunset's Western Garden Book lists this tree to grow in zones 2 -7 and 14 through 20. Phoenix is zone 13. In browsing the zone maps it looks like the zones this tree likes is in somewhat higher elevations so I'm thinking it needs some chilly air to flower.
HTH and good luck.
