|Bright yellow autumn leaves |
Not sure if it's supposed to be hardy here, but my seedlings from 2003 are still alive, having made it through at least two winters with sub-zero (°F) temperatures. On the other hand, after five years, my main specimen is still small.

Epilogue: after 9 years, our specimen finally bit the dust: it did not return after a relatively mild winter, so it may have been more averse to the wet conditions of the previous fall than any winter cold. In any case, it never attained much of a presence in our garden, and never bloomed, so I have to conclude it was just all that happy growing in Pennsylvania.
This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...

|Elaine Nichols||Oct 28, 2008||I would like to purchase several Eve's necklace trees to plant on my property in the Texas Hill Country Soutwest of San Antonio. How can I find a nursery that sells these trees. Thank you.|
I strongly recommend finding a local source (in which case I'm no help). If that fails, you can look through the various plant shopping categories in the Open Directory Project for some online sources.
- Seed from '02 trade. Knife-nicked. Baggy 75F (extended germination, re-nicked several times, overall 40%G)
- Same seed as above. Knife-nicked, soaked overnight. Baggy 75F (60%G, 9-24d)
Really cutting into the seedcoat helps germination, as do somewhat higher than room temperatures.
