Araucaria in coastal Georgia?
On a trip to So. Calif., I collected seed for various Araucaria species (cunninghamia, columnaris, bidwillii, rulei, angustifolia) and two Agathis species (robusta, australis).
The Atlanta Botanical Garden has a big A. angustifolia just outside the conservatory -- to the left of the entrance.
Does anyone in Georgia have any experience with these? Typically, these trees are not hardy. What has your experience been with these trees in South Georgia and especially along coastal Georgia?
A more common Araucaria is the heterophylla, commonly Norfolk Island Pine. Do these survive outdoors anywhere in Georgia? Have you spied specimens in South Georgia that have overwintered?
Thanks for your observations.
