Will Caesalpinia gilliesii (Desert Bird Of Paradise) grow outside year round in the seattle area (unprotected) ? I know it prefers dry. Some places say it's only hardy to zone 9 - other places to zone 8. Some online forums people say it survives zone 5 / 6. Just wondering if seattle is too wet? Any know examples growing planted out in the seattle area?
I just planted seeds on sunday and four of the seven seeds have already germinated - much to my surprise.
