RE: The Sequoia

Wow, i didn't know that 1. Sequoia can live in your area unprotected and 2. They go dormant in winter. The ones I've seen are more like giant pine trees.

They brown out here when small,supposedly this gets better as they get older and have more sap-antifreeze,we'll see.

It has kept a little more color each year...yea but don't look to close at that March pic...(-;

Stan

Even wilder this week with summer like thunderstorms(5.5" this last 10days)and lows in the 60s with 80s possible too,
then colder next week/weekend with highs in the low 50s!-And-maybe some snow north of here 0:

Mike

In the ground 27(?) palms
3 varieties of Sabal, 7 different Trachycarpus,Washy-Butia Eriospatha,2 Needle palms...some other stuff too-like T.ferns....etc.

And he spends every August through February wrapping them all up for winter, and every March through June unwrapping everything. ;-)

That's a heck of a comeback Jim! Looks like it's almost doubled in size. Have you tried growing Southern Magnolias yet? Edith Bogue is very hardy, handles my winters with no problem.

This may sound funny but since I don't own the house I have to
watch how much stuff I plant(-;

All the good spots next to the house are taken by palms-

I am thinking of trying one of these hardy Orange trees that
Tim in Mass sent me seeds from.

Anyway-I would love to have a Mag out in the yard too-for sure.
