I wanted to find out a little bit about the suitability for growing Picea omorika in the Southeastern U.S. - USDA Zone 7A. I live in west central North Carolina. I have a concern, whether justified or not, as to if the high heat/humidity of our Summers will adversely affect this species and its cultivars.
Can anyone shed light on this, especially those who live in this area? If it can be grown successfully, does it require any special site placement - filtered sun, protection from afternoon sun, etc.?
Thanks so much!
