I've purchased 2 bare root plants that are off to a good start. I'm hoping to keep it that way. I'm in California's Hi Desert area. Zone 8a. Dry hot summers (110 degrees +) Cold winters(15 degrees is the lowest I've noted).
I got the plants late so am hoping to keep them comfortable on my screened in patio to protect them from August heat this year.
I've read the nursery and internet information now I'm hoping input from a grower of this plant.
Will they tolerate full sun exposure year round in my area?
Will they tolerate high winds?
