These grow quite nicely in zone 6, providing you give them the required water.....our neighborhood has some that are 15 to 18 feet tall...part sun part shade....they also have them in pots inside and they are ceiling high.....8 to 10 feet tall and beautiful 5 to 6 foot leaves....they will not winter here though....
