Negative conifers On Mar 7, 2006, conifers from Rock Island, IL (Zone 5b) wrote:

Species lawsoniana even though rated as Zone 5, tend to grow in Zone 5 areas with maritime cooling which can come from any type of nearby water source. Other than that, it's not the cold temperatures that kill these species/cultivars of in Zone 5, it's the heat (where the maritime effect isn't present). Certain areas of Zone 6 Ohio however, are growing Chamaecyparis lawsoniana to perfection. As you can see from the photo of this cultivar in Michigan, it has a lot to be desired for (doesn't look so good).
