Rubus spectabilis, salmonberry, Nederland??
Hi all. I am wondering what chances I might have with a salmon berry up here in Ned. I'm not entirely sure if I'm a zone four or five, but this last winter was more of a five and the previous winter was a definite four.
They say it is hardy to zone 5. Is this something I could protect in winter and expect it to return or would I just lose it in the cold?
I am jealous of my brother's wild yard (Oregon coast) which is covered with wild salmon berries. Grr! No, I'm not really jealous, I just like those plants!
Maybe there is a cultivar that is hardier?
I'd love to know if anyone way-up is having any luck!
