Hardiness and cold tolerant native plants

We, at the nursery, are at the minimum temperatures tolerated by species from the Mediterranean. They will not handle soil (not air)temperatures below -15 C(8 F) for longer than a few hours. The higher elevation species have trouble here too as they need to be dormant to become cold tolerant. (Where summer frosts occur is the boundary for many northern species.)

You may have trouble with middle to high elevation species not coming out of dormancy along the coast. If you can't grow regular apples, peaches and other fruit trees that need a winter chill most high elevation plants are not for you.

Other places you might find us roaming about:
