Creosote in Colorado?
Hi, all. I'm a newbie here but love the site. Recently read the following thread: http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/load/swest/msg042308511035.html. My question is related to this thread, but not exactly along the same lines so I thought it would be best if I started a new one.
My issue is that I was raised in Mesa, AZ and LOVED the smell of creosote when it rained. Now I live in Denver, CO and absolutely miss the creosote bushes. I'd love to have a plant up here, but there are so many issues: How to obtain one, whether it'll grow indoors (because it wouldn't survive the winters otherwise) and also the altitude. The air is thinner up here in the Mile High city and I'm not sure if that would be a factor.
I was thinking that I might keep a bush in it's original soil in my sunroom to take advantage of as much heat and light as possible. Does anyone know if this is even feasible?
Thanks for your help!
