I would love to plant an Oriental Spruce. We live in Southeast Texas (Texas Louisiana border, about an hour from the Gulf of Mexico) zone 9A. Will it survive? If not, any other conifer that might thrive in this very hot, humid climate.

pharvard, I don't think this spruce would be a prudent choice for you in you area. I would recommend going to a really good nursery in your area, talking to the conifer person there and seeing what they have. Good luck!

These are the most delicate of the cactus type plants, just wondering what they will tolerate for cool temps

Blue Fescue or Elijah Blue grass looks great when first planted but keep in mind they don't live long. Yes you can propagate them, but I planted a bunch of them in my modern garden not even 2 years ago and most have turned an ugly yellow and appear dead now.
