    I'm in 4b and planted it this spring. It's not doing very well but probably too early to tell longterm. Foliage is burned already in shady, calm east side of house. Low this morning was -4F but I think the foliage burned at +4F.

    Hey Thuja - are you aware of the new Wisconsin forum?

    Wow! We're not worthy (as in Wayne's World). We'll probably discuss how to best grow ice crystals. ;)

    I have in the Madison area: P. bissetii, nuda, aureosulcata, Fargesia murieliae, F. nitida, and Arundinaria gigantea that made it thru at least 1 winter, and many others just planted this spring.

    Hey-

    I will wait until spring after the floods in April.....with all the snow we have already it could be interesting....still have a lot of winter ahead of us......last year it did not flood, it was a great (but dry) summer, NO BUGS!

    Merry Christmas,

    Fred
