Re: Protection off yesterday
The Schefflera is from Cistus Nursery. Second year in the ground. No heat this winter but I buried it in snow for the -13F event.
Not sure if Schefflera or Fatsia is hardier. Fatsia is clearly not hardy here. I doubt Schefflera will be hardy in cold winters with cold duration but who knows, only time will tell. Perhaps extreme coastal areas in our area can pull off a Schefflera?
