Gardeners' Notes:

Positive rockmanwss On Nov 23, 2010, rockmanwss from Wilmington, DE wrote:

I have successfully grown this plant in Wilmington, DE zone 6-7 borderline. Every Thanksgiving, I wrap the trunk with twinkle lights and throw a handful of them in the middle of the crown. I fold the leaves up (wearing a thick long sleeved jacket) and tie them. I wrap the whole tree in a sheet of plastic and plug in the lights. It has survived for 12 years now and is about 5-6 feet tall with a two foot trunk that is about 10 inches in diameter.
