I bought this tree is Houston TX this past fall. I brought it home to south Alabama and over wintered it indoors. It has been on my south facing covered patio for two months now. I just don't think it's getting as much sunlight as it needs to thrive. I should say that I'm not sure exactly what it needs (sunlight) to be completely happy. Currently it is about 5 ft tall and 3 1/2 foot wide at its largest span.
I am thinking of putting it in the ground this week. Does someone have some advice on what might benefit my tree? My zone is borderline 8b/9a (we were recently upgraded to 9a). I have plenty of acreage so plenty of room to put it somewhere it can GROW!
Thank you Coastalzonepush,
We have constant humidity. I do have a site that fits your suggestion. I am very close to Florida and sometimes want to sell my house and move farther south due to my love for tropical plants :) We rarely have a "hard freeze" here and MOST everything, even if it dies back, comes back in the Spring.
I would love to hear opinions from others as well. I do not want to lose this tree, nor do I want to have to bring it back in the house.
