Moso survives zone 6a no leaf burn

MacDaddy(z6a NY)March 17, 2008

If you recall I started about 120 moso seed then abused the seedlings beyond belief leaving only one survivor.

That seedling is now about 3 feet tall and survived this winter in 6a with no leaf burn.

Not likely but hoping this plant continues to behave this way as gets bigger.

That's awesome. We need more people doing what your doing to get more hardy cultivars.

I have a few plants I planted out last Spring that all have severe leaf burn. This Winter has been fairly mild so hopefully the root system is doing ok.

Both the Anderson clone and regular Moso survived last winter with no damage. The Anderson has been hardy here, but the regular moso freezes back about 1 out of 2 winters.
