I live in Mobile Al. While my Foggii is still a young plant, It came out of our 2 really bad freezes draped with only a cotton sheet and a prayer last winter. The Meyer lemons not ten feet away dropped every bloom and gave us zero lemons (2 trees & over 200 the yr before -7 yr. trees) My Foggii bloomed as usual. I has been in the low 20's, so far it has not had any apparent effect.We'll see this spring. Jim Tomczak Mobile Al. (8a or,& 8b Sometimes I can't tell)

I am uploading a couple of pictures of my Michelia. It was purchases about 11 years ago in a 7 gallon can. The variety was listed as the Jack Fogg but mine isnt as pink as the other one shown here. It blooms in March here in Northern California and it smells so good!
