Dear All,

I have a clump of C. x powellii which is now about 3 ft across and which has
weathered about five winters here in Zone 6. But more noteworthy is the C.
cv 'Carolina Beauty' which  I got from Brent and Becky? It has not bloomed
yet, after 5 yrs,  but it has survived through all sorts of abuse including
last winter when it got down to a "fearsome" 7F. As Jim Waddick suggests,
deep planting is one of the ingredients for success.
