I am a city gardner in zone 6. We have dramatic temp swings in this area with cold winters, and hot summers. Love to grow my own fruit and veggies

I have a shady area under some trees lining the driveway, I have been considering these as part of a planting. Probly not in this year's budget/time tho, lol

I've planted 4, and they're all like this one, so I guess that's good. @gjones @lesliecole49
