Anyone GROWING Stewartia?
Ok...I'm really purplexed...I have a Stewartia pseudocamilia here and love it. I am in zone 6 in the middle of Connecticut, and it isn't in a microclimate in my yard. In fact, it is quite exposed.
I am moving to Troy, OH which has daily averages 2 degrees warmer year round than here....I have been watching the weather since August and can confirm that.
There is an example growing in Ithaca, NY....However, one of the posters here who lives in Cincinatti says that it is marginally hardy there....which perplexes me as since I grow it here, I, in theory at least, should be able to grow it in Troy. So, does anyone grow it, or has tried it in the Dayton/Troy area? Thanks.
