Thanks for posting these Herman, I like the feel of your trunk, should be nice when you get the next section fattened up.

I always kept mine above 30 in the winter, and had great results.

Hi Judy; That's not so easy here.   I don't have any place for a cold house as I'm in an apartment.  I THINK I've seen one in an arboretum near here so wonder what zone they're actually safe in.  This last 2 winters we've had a few days that were in the single digits and I lost several oak trees that were all supposedly hardy here or colder.  likely because they were potted.  :o

Well you may have to wait until your address changes to have one of these with any sense of confidence that you can maintain it safely through the extremes of the cold winter.

West coast folks.  They're native and prolific there.

Judy, when do you repot, and what zone are you in (Sunset or USDA)?

I have one that needs repotting, and I'm trying to decide when to do it. I'm in Sunset zone 11, USDA zone 9A.
