Hardy Plants and Trees
We live about 800 feet above sea level so are prone to deep frosts and very cold winters. Over the years we have learned that perennials, which die down in the winter serve us best. However, I am interested in planting a Cercis Canadensis Pansy Tree and wonder exactly how hardy it is. Does anyone have any experience of growing this tree in similar chilly conditions? Also I'm keen to put quite a mature specimen in and would like to know if anyone has planted a mail order Pansy Tree, which appears to arrive as a bare rooted plant only 90cm high. If so, how long does it take to become a fully fledged tree?
