I agree with Bayareatropics, hardy to zone 9a easily, once established. ( From personal experience ). In New Zealand this tree is used alot as a screen tree, planted along the edge of your property to shelter you, and other more tender plants from prevailing winds. ( A native Tree of New Zealand ).
