Saskatoon Blueberry/Amelanchier alnifolia

Lancaster, CA

Hello All,

I'm not certain this is the best place to post this question but I'm giving it a shot. I've also posted in the Native Plants forum.

I've purchased 2 bare root plants that are off to a good start. I'm hoping to keep it that way. I'm in Antelope Valley area. Zone 8a. Dry hot summers (110 degrees +) Cold winters(15 degrees is the lowest I've noted).

I got the plants late so am hoping to keep them comfortable on my screened in patio to protect them from August heat this year.

I've read the nursery and internet information now I'm hoping input from a grower of this plant.

Will they tolerate full sun exposure year round in my area?
Will they tolerate high winds?

Any personal input you can provide would be helpful
